The Green Grass of Home - Sod for Youth Baseball

Did You Know?


Field crews have laid down much needed sod on the historic fields at Tom Fontaine Park in Macon. The Scotts Company LLC (Scotts) and Major League Baseball (MLB) awarded a $50,000 grant to the United Way of Central Georgia to refurbish one field, and the Atlanta Braves took onrenewal of the second field.

The fields look ready to "play ball" in time for Little League to start.

The hope is for these fields near Matilda Hartley Elementary School to boost sports-related activities for the children of West Macon and beyond.

Program awarded only four grants from more than 350 grant applications across 315 cities in 43 states.
