Delta Dream grants, sponsored by the Nationals’ corporate partner, Delta Air Lines, support youth baseball field capital improvements, among other programs.
MDLL will use the funds to refurbish, repair, and upgrade the batting cages at Parklawn Park and Mason District Park, including new cement and turf and updating the backstops, screens and pitch machines, says Phil Headley, MDLL vice president.
The grant was awarded at a Nationals game where an MDLL team member got to throw the first pitch.
“It is a great honor and incredible generosity,” Headley says. “We are excited to perform a long-overdue project now that we have the funds to do so.”
