Baseball legend dedicates new ballpark

Posted: Updated:

A new baseball field in Harrisburg is ready for its first pitch. The park is part of a renovation project, and it has a big name behind it.

One of baseball's all time greats was at the Boys and Girls Club in Harrisburg to dedicate a multi-purpose field. Orioles Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. and his brother Billy came to the midstate in honor of this tremendous project.

The field is part of the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation's effort, along with Mark Butler from Ollie's Bargain Outlet, to create a beautiful new field for kids in Harrisburg.

It is a developmental park for baseball and other sports, with a 20 foot wall like Fenway Park. It's one of 14 parks of its kind around the country.

The field is an ideal place for kids to play and give them more recreational opportunities.
