Clinch River Little League’s new batting cage has been open and in service for two months. The Clinch Valley Times met with CRLL Representative Steve Austin, who allowed us to take photos of the new facility.
The new facility has two batting cages. When these photos were taken one side was set up for baseball and the other was set up for softball. This will allow two teams to use the cage at the same time. The center section provides space for both softball and baseball pitchers and catchers to practice.
The Clinch River Little League has, for many years, been a great place for area boys and girls to learn the meaning of teamwork and fair play, along with the basics of softball and baseball. This new facility will provide young athletes the opportunity to grow and develop throughout the year.
The Clinch River Little League wishes to thank all those who provided materials, equipment, money, time, and personal effort toward this project. They are: Mountain Materials, St. Paul Builders, Wytheville Sand Company, Hometown Hardware, Ritter Metal Roofing, Wayne Fields, Steve Sullivan, Steve Austin, The Russell County Board of Supervisors, The Town of St. Paul, CRLL Board Members Missy Carter, Bob Gibson, and Doug Howard, community service workers, and detainees from Flatwoods Camp 18 for labor.
