NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – It’s time to pick a local youth baseball or softball field that deserves a makeover!
The Norfolk Tides are once again holding a Field Makeover contest. Since 2012, the Tides have renovated 13 fields across Hampton Roads. The most recent renovation was the Churchland Little League field in Portsmouth.
The winning field gets an upgrade to the playing surface from the Tides grounds crew.
Nominations closed on Sept. 17 and now it’s time to vote for the most worthy field! The voting will be open from now until Sept. 23 at 4 p.m.
The 2019 finalists are:
- Albemarle School in Elizabeth City
- Central Accomack Little League in Onancock
- Creeds Pony – Tidewater Adventist Academy in Chesapeake
- East Ocean View Beach Athletic Association in Norfolk
- Green Run Little League in Virginia Beach
- Plaza Little League Softball in Virginia Beach
- Virginia Beach Little League in Virginia Beach
- Wilson Little League in Portsmouth
The project is made possible thanks to the Tides Youth Baseball Fund, which was established by the Tides in 1990.
