FLORENCE — The town and Florence Little League have been selected by the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation to receive upgrades to the Little League field as part of the Kendrick Family Fields program.
This new program, supported by Diamondbacks Managing General Partner Ken Kendrick and his family, supports Little Leagues with improvements to existing fields in communities statewide.
The renovations are a charitable donation from the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and the Kendrick family and will begin after the 2020 Little League season, to allow time for a thorough evaluation and renovation of the field surface. Upgrades will also include a new scoreboard.
“The Community Services Department will work alongside the Diamondbacks to ensure the improvements enhance this important legacy field that is a centerpiece of Little League in Florence,” the town said in an announcement.
When renovations are complete, the town will hold a grand opening featuring Diamondbacks representatives.
