SAY Detroit and Manz Playfield boosted by Scotts® and MLB partnership
This past spring SAY Detroit was the recipient of the Scotts® Field Refurbishment Program and Major League Baseball field renovation initiative grant. Scotts and MLB received more than 620 proposals across nearly every state – and SAY Detroit was one of four organizations chosen to partner with to bring new life to a neglected city baseball field.
So far, more than $100,000 in repairs and upgrades have been made to Manz Playfield on Detroit’s east side, including $50,000 in funding from the Scotts grant. Take a look at the opening ceremony video and hear from thankful SAY Play baseball players and coaches.
