Badgers Clean-up Mildred Barons Park
Mildred Barons Park was in need of a major clean-up and with a little TLC this could be one of the baseball gems of the East End.

The London Badgers were in desperate need of a dedicated practice field so Coach Lumley went on the hunt for a field that would fit the needs of London's premier AAA baseball program. With a little help from Google Maps and driving to various locations presented this little "Diamond in the Rough" called Mildred Baron Park.

The London Badgers were in desperate need of a dedicated practice field so Coach Lumley went on the hunt for a field that would fit the needs of London's premier AAA baseball program. With a little help from Google Maps and driving to various locations presented this little "Diamond in the Rough" called Mildred Baron Park.  

 

With Home Hardware in right, railroad tracks in centre and left field and Davies Tree service behind 3rd Base dugout this is definitely a prime location for the Badgers to train and potentially host games. So far everyone of our players and coaches, that have visited the park are seeing the potential that this field could have.

 

The park is in rough shape so Coach Lumley organized a clean-up crew consisting of players from our 18U and 16U London Badger teams. The first task was to start cleaning up the fence lines to ensure that the park was safe for our younger more curious players and siblings who will be rummaging and exploring throughout the summer. The second task was to help prepare the diamond so it is safe to practice on. 

 

The players did a tremendous job by removing 10-needles from the park to ensure that it is now safe for our young ones to move around the park without concern. Now with the help of the City Parks and Rec's crew we can now move forward with our second task in preparing the diamond so it is ready for practice and competition.
