The Fields of Dreams at 410 McClurg Road is PRIVATELY owned by Boardman Community Baseball. We receive no Federal, State or Township dollars to operate, maintain or upgrade our facility. The complex was built through the generous donations of individual benefactors, local businesses, service organizations and individual families in Boardman. The maintenance, equipment and upgrades at the Fields of Dreams are financed through continued donations, league fundraisers and outside tournaments sponsored by Boardman Community Baseball. We have one full-time employee (40 hours/week) and four part-time student employees during the season who maintain the fields.

Through fundraising and the pursuit of grant monies, we are able to make upgrades at the complex.
