The City of Gillette announced today that it has received a $50,000 Daniels Fund grant to support the completion of the American Legion Baseball Field.
"The grant will enable the City of Gillette, in partnership with the American Legion Post 42 Baseball, to finalize the construction of the American Legion baseball field located at the corner of Warlow Drive and Gurley Avenue. The new turfed baseball field will provide over 1,100 young athletes with a high quality, regulation field to further develop and improve their game of baseball while fostering sportsmanship, discipline, respect and team work," said Joe Lunne, Public Information Officer for the City of Gillette.
Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need, established the Daniels Fund to provide grants and scholarships in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. For more information, please visit www.danielsfund.org
