HIGHLAND BALL FORD SITE LAND ACQUISITION FROM RYAN CO
On May 7, Ryan Companies completed the transfer of the former Ford Field land on which the East and West Fields, the snack bar, and the batting cages behind the West Field are situated to the Friends of Highland Ball. Friends of Highland Ball is an entity created by Highland Ball to hold the land that will be used by the Highland Ball organization.
This momentous event is more then a decade in the making and secures the future of baseball and softball at the site for generations to come. Many volunteers worked for countless hours to make this vision a reality. Later this summer, Highland Ball will share its plans for the site and recognize the volunteers and community members who brought this dream to fruition.
Norder Field, located on the southern half of the ballpark and named in honor of the Larry Norder and family for their generosity to Highland Ball, was not part of the land transfer from Ryan Companies. The field will be demolished as part of the Montreal Avenue extension.
Please see the attached joint press release from Ryan Companies and Highland Ball for more information.
