This past Friday afternoon marked the beginning of a new life for the Avoca Ball Fields. Mitch Walters of Friendship Enterprises and his son Brandon, were on hand for an unveiling of the sign that reflects the new name of the park --Friendship Park. A $25,000 naming rights agreement was signed by the City and Friendship Enterprises. At the press conference today Mitch recalled story after story about his boys playing on those fields, him coaching there, once even subbing for an umpire who couldn’t make the game and all the friends he and his family made there. I was thinking that is what life is all about, making memories with your family and friends.
The park couldn’t be more appropriately named. Enjoy your summer and stop by the park sometime and take in a game….it will bring back memories.
