The community is invited to a ballpark lunch at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, to hear about the Weatherford College Foundation’s “Fields of Dreams” campaign.

WC is taking its athletic programs to the next level with the addition of artificial turf on Stuart Field and Roger Williams Ballpark.

Thanks to generous donors like Richard and Nancy Stuart, softball turf is already in place, completed in the spring. The next step is raising the funds for turf on Williams Ballpark, with the summer of 2021 as the target to install turf in the baseball facility, in time for fall practices and games.

“We’ve already seen the benefit of the softball turf in fewer missed practice due to rain, no mowing and no watering,” said Brent Baker, vice president of institutional advancement. “Turf is also a competitive advantage for our teams in recruiting, and it will allow us to host more tournaments and playoff games as well.”

The “First Pitch” event Oct. 22 is a casual attire event and will feature complimentary hot dogs, apple pie and Chicken Express tea on the new turf surface at Stuart Field.

RSVP to the WC Institutional Advancement Office at 817-598-6273 or epayne@wc.edu.
