We are Dedicated Volunteers Working for Our Children
Brighton Baseball, Inc., is a support network of volunteer parents, coaches and community members who are dedicated to the positive emotional and physical maturity of our town youth. Our emphasis is the development of desirable values including fair play, good sportsmanship and community service. We foster a sensitivity and appreciation for the differences in intellectual, social and physical skills among our children. We believe the game of baseball is one more opportunity for our children to grow in self-esteem, confidence and motivation in a safe environment. These are important and desirable attributes, which stay with and serve our participants well throughout their lives.

Field Maintenance and Improvements
During the 2002 season home run fences were installed in all the fields at Meridian Center and the new softball field at Meridian Center opened.
In the 2003 season the Brighton Baseball, Inc. Board of Directors allocated funds for fencing, dugouts, a scoreboard, and irrigation lines. Additionally, the Meridian Fields underwent a significant maintenance program in 2003. Our Brighton Town Board has once again agreed to fund a series of treatments including fertilization, weed control, aeration and seeding.
Also in 2003 irrigation systems were installed in all three fields at Meridian Center (see Meridian Fields Capital Improvements pdf). The watering is essential to maintain the overall quality and safety for our kids. The fields receive very heavy use and combined with the low rainfall experienced in some years, our playing surfaces suffer significant damage. This was not an inexpensive endeavor but one we felt was absolutely essential.
Three new fields are ready for play at the new Buckland Park on Westfall Road. This includes two little league fields and a lighted senior field, Moore Corporate Field. All fields have dugouts, fences and irrigation. The price tag for these three fields, much of which will be borne by Brighton Baseball, Inc., is approximately $300,000.
