The Tri-City Valleycats Community Grounds Crew has begun to accept applications for the 2018 season.

Leagues are encouraged to submit an application, along with photos of the field — primarily of the infield, home plate and pitcher’s mound areas. Taking the photos early, prior to any snowfall, is crucial to the application process in determining the scope of the work. Applications should be submitted by the end of February. Work begins with the 4 in 24 renovations in April.

One of the Tri-City ValleyCats most important initiatives is to assist local youth leagues with maintenance and upkeep of their fields throughout the spring and summer. Their mission is to provide the youth of the Capital Region with a safe place to play, learn, grow, and most importantly have fun.
