Progress on Little Cubs Field at Humboldt park

As you can see by the photos, "Little Cubs Field at Humboldt Park" is getting close to completion. This project comes to our beloved Humboldt Park through the generosity of the Chicago Cubs Major League Baseball Team. The groundbreaking ceremony was held in August 2008, and in attendance was Cubs' pitcher, Carlos Zambrano.
There will be a little league specifically designated to play in this new field, but other little leaguers will get a chance to play there too. Also, the field is available for rental for other groups such as the scouts or little league ballplayers from other areas. We have been in contact with the Chicago Cubs, and they tell us that Opening Day will be sometime in May 2009.
We also received details about the field at the monthly meeting of the Humboldt Park Advisory Council (HPAC). They meet on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30pm in the Fieldhouse, and the meeting is open to all. PLAY BALL!!!!!
