Volunteers from the Princeton 2014 Slopitch organization converged on Memorial Park Ball Diamond Saturday morning to begin preparations to continue beautification of the area.

Last year saw work done to the grandstands and concession and volunteers are hoping to complete the work by season opening.

Work is being done on the dugouts, grandstand, foul poles and field.

The Town of Princeton is supplying paint via Cloverdale Paint, (Princeton Paint and Decorating) and the Slopitch Organization is making purchases of field equipment and plan to do as much of the field maintenance as they are able to do.

Dependant upon volunteers, the concession will be up and running for the 2014 season.

The season opener for Princeton Slopitch is Friday, May 2 at 7 p.m. Regular season games will take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 7. “

We’re hoping to get the game back like it used to be 20 years or so ago,” said organizer Becky Vermette, we have 12 teams signed up this year.”

Princeton Slopitch has scheduled a Draft Tourney (local teams) for the weekend of June 13, 14 and 15 and a Ball Buster Tourney (includes out of town teams) for July 18, 19 and 20.

Head on out to the diamond to cheer on the teams and keep up with the organization via 2014 Princeton Slopitch! https://www.facebook.com/groups/433572723323690/
