Groundbreaking brings the Challenger baseball league one step closer to making its Field of Dreams a reality
For years, children and teenagers of the Syracuse Challenger baseball league have had to play their games in the heat of the summer after the other Central New York teams have finished their seasons. After the groundbreaking for the Challenger Field of Dreams on May 11, the kids are one step closer to having a stadium of their own. Dewitt residents, elected officials and members of the Central New York baseball community gathered at the Carrier Wills Recreation Center in East Syracuse to celebrate the beginning of construction for the Challenger Field of Dreams.
