President donates batting cage to Sacramone Park By Tara Vocino he Everett City Council unanimously approved the donation during Monday’s City Council meeting at City Hall. Councillor-at-Large Stephanie Smith, whose children play Little League, said the donation is amazing and super generous. “When other cities come in when we host games, they love our parks,” Smith said. “I want to thank them for completing the Field of Dreams.” Ward 3 Councillor Darren Costa, whose son also plays Little League, said Everett is slowly becoming a baseball and football city. “It’s a great organization,” Costa said. “I want to thank Brian Savi and George Castiello for all the work that they do.” Savi told The Everett Advocate outside of the council meeting that Sacramone has impeccable drainage with an artifi cial turf fi eld, LED scoreboards on both mounds, a state-of-theart dugout with helmet shelves and bag hooks and an amazing hut to sell concessions. “With hard work, I was able to get a batting cage worth $23,000 donated… It’s the fi nal piece of a perfect park,” Savi said. Approximately 200 boys and Advocate Online: www.advocatenews.net girls will use the batting cage for approximately 20 years. For Savi, it’s special, as it’s his son’s – Nicky, 12 – last year playing Little League. “It’ll be used for practice,” Savi said. “It’s one thing that the city really needs to focus on, as Glendale Park has batting cages for softball.” According to longtime board something the cities around us have not yet experienced. “We are already a top performing league but I can promise having this batting cage is only going to make us bigger, stronger, better and an overall more competitive city to play with,” Bullens said.

The batting cage will be on the Teddy Peanut Butter side. Their Opening Day is this Saturday at 10 a.m. Vice President Jackie Bullens said on behalf of Everett Little League that it obviously takes both time and money to get such a large project even started, but it also takes passionate, dedicated and good people – solid people – to accomplish such a lofty goal. “I am proud to be a part of a board that constantly gives and a community that constantly supports,” Bullens said. “It literally takes a village and the city of Everett never stops raising their own to be the best they can be.” Bullens went on to say that having a batting cage right here at Sac is a leg up in this city and said Sacramone Park is one of the greatest parks in the state when it comes to a baseball fi eld – the only thing missing was a batting cage. “With some hard work and dedication Brian Savi, the President of Everett Little League, was able to get everything covered without costing Everett Little league anything,” Young said. “The total cost was $23,000.” Young said it’s people like him who make Everett Little League a great place to be a part of. City councillors also approved $10,500 worth in donations to the Summer Jobs Program; $530 from city employees for the fire victims fund for the month of March; 115 bicycle helmets to the Police Department in the amount of $2,300; and the acceptance of the drinking water state revolving fund grant in the amount of $150,000.
