Many kids have their first encounter with baseball through a little league team. But in one of the most under-resourced neighborhoods in Austin, getting the right equipment doesn’t come easy.
Making it big time in baseball is a tall task. But it all starts on a much smaller field. A little league one like east Austin’s Mabson Field, only this field has seen better days. But several groups are working together to bring it to all its glory.
“The field overall is in pretty rough shape.”
The Round Rock Express, along with the Nolan Ryan Foundation, RBI Austin, and many others are working to raise the $270,000 needed to fix this field. In place of weeds and potholes, they’ll get artificial turf. Something the kids can be proud of.
