From State Rep. Steve Stafstrom:
Exciting news! Today we broke ground on the long overdue refurbishment of the Black Rock Little League (BRLL) fields at Ellsworth Park. I secured $450,000 in state funding for the project.
Joined by Bridgeport Mayor Joe Ganim, City Councilors Scott Burns and Matthew McCarthy, along with BRLL President Brian Kabel and other board members, we celebrated this funding and the start of the project. The final product will be new, state-of-the-art baseball and softball fields with upgraded drainage, fencing and dugouts. Construction is slated to be complete for the spring season.
BRLL is growing in popularity and our kids deserve the best facilities to grow and learn.
I thank the Governor and the State Bond Commission for approving the funds, in addition to my colleagues in the legislature who voted to approve the additional allocation to help improve the playing fields for Bridgeport Little Leaguers. I also want to thank all the BRLL coaches, parents and volunteers for their advocacy of this project and to the City of Bridgeport for administering it.
