Because of poor drainage, the team would often have to play games at Julian Curtiss School.

“Baseball is one of the few sports where you can’t really play in the rain, and when the drainage system isn’t good it can really mess up the flow of our team practicing and playing games,” Pratley added.

Improving the poor drainage system at the GHS field and fields around Town would be costly, but it definitely would be beneficial to the players.

If you want to help this cause, Pratley recommends donating to the Greenwich Athletic Foundation, which serves to support public sports facilities around Town. With help from residents around Town, the fields could soon look like the ones in other towns around Fairfield County.
