Seaview Little League Field Improvements

With the future of our fields now secure, we have begun the long awaited and needed improvements to our Seaview fields and facilities.  Starting in 2017, we embarked on a major drive to invest hard work, time and money to make Seaview a premier baseball complex.  Thanks to your support of our annual Hit-a-Thon, we have been able to begin the major improvements to our fields. 

You will see a lot of changes to our complex over the coming year.  These include upgraded grass practice area for all divisions to utilize behind the Majors and Minor A fields.  New restroom facilities and snackbar.  All new concrete walkways throughout the complex.  New scorebooths at the upper division fields.  The list goes on and on.  Look below at some of the items we are currently fundraising for along with projects that have already begun and/or completed recently.  We thank all of you for your support in making Seaview a wonderful place for our kids to play baseball and our families to all come together.
