Hawbaker helps with new baseball field in Bellefonte

BELLEFONTE — Glenn O. Hawbaker, Hawbaker Engineering and other generous sponsors including Sheetz have joined forces to assist Bellefonte Little League in building a third baseball field at the Webster Field Complex. Owned by the Bellefonte Borough, the complex is located in Spring Township off North Penn Street and encompasses nearly two acres.

Hawbaker donated the following services to the league, which will complete phase one of the new field project:

∫ Engineering, design, and layout of the field and surrounding components

∫ Excavating/grading the field area

∫ Furnished and spread topsoil on field

∫ Seeding of field and all disturbed areas (compliments of Greene’s Landscape, Milesburg)

“Having the Glenn O. Hawbaker corporation step up to partner with Bellefonte Little League on our third field is a dream come true. Their unbelievable generosity will enable us to build a safe, fun place for the children of Bellefonte to play for generations to come. We are extremely thankful for everyone at Hawbakers for helping them move the project forward,” said Bellefonte Little League President Bill Carey.

The Bellefonte Little League is still in need of support for the next phase of the project and is asking assistance with the following jobs:

∫ Perimeter field fencing

∫ Dugout construction

∫ Excavation and placement of infield dirt

∫ Purchase and installation of scoreboard

If you are interested in contributing to the field project or need additional information, contact Bill Carey 814-360-5274.
