About this fundraiser

In 2018, a group of committed baseball parents, coaches and supporters came together around an ambitious vision: to create a baseball complex that will foster community growth while allowing players of all ages to develop their skills in a safe, functional and fan-friendly environment.

Kettle Moraine High School, the Kettle Moraine Jr. Laser Baseball Club and additional community teams currently utilize the four fields at Wales Community Park. The goal of the Step Up to the Plate project is to transform these existing fields into a baseball complex that will successfully service all groups. Key players in this initiative are: the Step Up to the Plate Committee comprised of volunteers representing all ages of the Kettle Moraine Baseball Program, the Kettle Moraine School District, and the Village of Wales employees who work closely with Wales Community Park.

There are many current challenges presented by the fields at Wales Community Park. Kettle Moraine High School's move to Spring baseball in 2019 makes it imperative that enhancements are made to the existing complex.

Current project plans call for construction to be completed in two phases.

Phase I is scheduled for Spring 2018. It will include improvements to the Varsity field's fencing, dugouts, bullpens, batting cage and sound system. The Kettle Moraine School District's commitment is to upgrade infield dirt on the JV and Varsity fields, improve the warning track on the Varsity field, and assist with rebuilding bullpens on the Varsity field.

Phase II is scheduled for Fall 2018. It includes installing artificial turf infield on the Varsity field, improving drainage on the Varsity and JV fields, improving spectator seating, installing electronic locks and cameras, and making functional improvements to ball field areas. The Kettle Moraine School District's commitment is to provide improved drainage, install concrete for bleachers and other areas needed, connect to the school district's fiber network for key cards and surveillance cameras, and provide engineering and professional services.

In addition to the Kettle Moraine School District's commitment, community donations are needed to help make this project a reality.
