As a registered non-profit organization, CRLL takes care to spend our limited funds in ways that benefit our community, our kids, and the games of baseball and softball. Every year we allocate thousands of dollars in materials and hundreds of hours in volunteer labor to help maintain and improve the facilities we use.  We are grateful for past CRLL donors whose time and donations provided the infrastructure we all enjoy today:  dugouts, scoreboards, lights, batting cage, fencing, sod, concrete, grading and leveling labor, and much more. CRLL is committed to making sure the facilities are maintained and are a source of pride for the community.   

Thank you to all of our current and ongoing sponsors and volunteers for helping make our fields look great. It's more than just a place to play ball.... it's about creating a gathering spot where all members of the community can meet up, socialize, enjoy a meal, and create memories with their families.
