The Dugout Club

Stepping up to the Plate: A capital campaign for Oakwood Baseball and Softball facility renovation.
With great interest and enthusiasm, The Oakwood High School Baseball Facilities Association (fondly known as the Dugout Club) proposes a four- phase renovation project to restore and upgrade the OHS Baseball and Softball Field. A group of parents, with a shared love of baseball and a mutual interest in improving the baseball facility, came together in April 2022 to form the Dugout Club with the sole purpose of supporting the legacy of Oakwood Baseball.
The ambitious renovation project, spearheaded by 14 parent board members, seeks to continue the proud Oakwood Baseball tradition by giving the next generation of players a field of dreams.
The proposed 4-phase project will restore and improve the SAFETY, PLAYABILTY, AESTHETICS, and TECHNOLOGY for the OHS Baseball and Softball complex.
Phase 1 will include drainage and infield excavation and renovation.
Future Phases will include added brick backstop with net, new brick overlay of the dugouts, and new hardscape and concrete in the dugout and spectator areas, aeration and soil rejuvenation in the outfield, new fencing, a warning track and new press box and stadium seating.
The goal of this campaign will be 100% community supported. Field the dream with your generous contribution and help us carry on the legacy of our beloved American pastime. Every gift is appreciated and helps us towards our goal.
