On May 7, 2020, Ryan Companies formally transferred to the former "Ford Fields" to the Friends of Highland Ball. This includes the land on which the East and West Fields, the snack bar, and the batting cages behind the West Field are situated. Friends of Highland Ball is an entity created by Highland Ball to hold the land that will be used by the Highland Ball organization.
Norder Field, which was named in honor of Larry Norder and his family for their generosity to Highland Ball, was not part of the transfer from Ryan Companies, as that land is needed for the Montreal Avenue extension. Before demolition, the stadium lights from Norder Field were moved to the West Field, thereby increasing the number of games played at the West Field each season and preserving the Norder Family legacy at Highland Ball.
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.
