Bring Back the Lights

In March of 2014 a series of heavy rains and high winds blasted the Central Massachusetts area.  One casualty of the severe weather was three of the light poles at the Legion Field in Northbridge.  The poles coming down tore the wires from the snack shack and left the fields without light and power for the remainder of the 2014 season.   All night games were cancelled which impacted the ability to schedule two games a day for the Majors Division in our league.  Because of the reduced schedule all inter-town games and reduce the number of regular season games significantly.   In addition to the impact on game schedules, the snack shack was unable to open, eliminating a source of income for the league.

The NJBL is currently trying to raise funds to bring the lights back to the legion field in 2015.  The goal of the league is to raise $xx,xxx in order to install new lights and poles.   In addition to fundraisers we will also be accepting donations.  If you are interested in donating to the Bring Back the Lights effort, you can contact Jim Roberts or Angelo Flauto.
