New First Nation baseball field opens following delay from COVID-19 pandemic

June 20, 2022  By Turf & Rec

Prince Edward Island’s Abegweit First Nation has opened a new baseball field that benefited from a $70,000 grant from the Toronto Blue Jays’ charitable arm.

Work began on the field two years ago, but COVID-19 delayed its official opening.

The community believes the new field will promote both physical and mental health and will be a focal point locally.

The Jays Care Foundation has already put on a baseball clinic at the new diamond.
