It has been just over a year since Troy Feaste and a passionate group of parents walked onto an overgrown field filled with debris from a devastating hurricane, determined to bring Youth Baseball back to Abaco. In spite of many obstacles, the program is catching on, and Troy and his dedicated team of coaches and volnteers have created something special.
I had the opportuntiy to atttend a scrimmage between the Murphy Town and The Coopers Town Senior Boys on a Saturday afternoon last November. The boys have come a long way in developing their natural talents and showed impressive discipline and sportsmanship. The players and fans alike were having a blast. The atmosphere was electric with bursts of applause and cheering with every hit and good defensive play. The day ended with the smell of sausages grilling on the sidelines, big smiles, and tired but happy kids.
Construction on the new bathrooms at The Murphy Town Field will begin in the next two weeks. A big "Thank You" to everyone that contributed to our fundraiser, which will help to pay for the much needed facility. Our goals for 2022 include raising money for a fence and backstop, and expanding the program to several other communities throughout Abaco. We will be bringing some equipment and making a visit to Grand Cay this month to jump start the baseball/softball program there.
Thank you for helping us to bring Youth Baseball and Softball back to Abaco!
