In 2019, the Scotts® Field Refurbishment Program will provide grants of products and services, with a value up to $50,000, to four youth-serving organizations that are in need of renovations to existing ballfields. In addition to the grant, Scotts will host a ribbon cutting ceremony as well as a youth baseball clinic run by the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation and will be attended by a Major League Baseball special guest, and will donate a new equipment package to the local leagues. Applications will be accepted from Dec. 18, 2018 – Feb. 28, 2019, with project work to take place in the Spring of 2019. A blue ribbon panel of judges – including Cal Ripken, Jr., leadership from Scotts & MLB – will help determine the four grantees.

Program Background
The Scotts® Field Refurbishment Program is a major diamond and green space renovation initiative that has provided 20 youth-focused baseball and softball fields across the country with significant upgrades. Scotts, the Official Lawn Care Company of Major League Baseball, enters its fourth season as an official partner of the "PLAY BALL" initiative. Together, MLB and Scotts are encouraging youth and communities to get outside and enjoy activities, like baseball and softball.

Grant Award Packages
Each refurbishment will include one (1) infield makeover that incorporates a new infield with sod and infield dirt. Other enhancements may include:
  • New pitcher’s mound
  • New home plate and batter’s boxes
  • New bases and anchors
  • New fencing and/or backstop
  • New scoreboard
