Help us turn this old baseball field into a

Kingdom “Field of Dreams”

JR Gardner

A Runner on a Mission

JR Gardner, the director of the YFCMP Armory Youth Center has a mission.

If you know JR, you know his heart in helping the teens in our communities. An important way to support youth is by building up healthy relationships with them, their families, and their communities. Having positive activities for teens is a way to do this. This happens within the walls of The Armory Youth Center and beyond.  Participation in sports is an integral part of CL Sports and the Armory Baseball League.

Help us turn this old field into something updated and beautiful. Our goal is to have a fully operational field for kids by the spring of 2024.

Here are some of the improvements we want to accomplish:

  • New fencing and dugouts

  • Updating the field from dirt to a turf surface

  • Irrigation and drainage

  • Adding a press box, refreshment stand, and restrooms

  • Lighting for night games and practices

Please help us raise $200,000!

We have raised $103,581 towards our goal!

Your generosity is so appreciated. All donations  will go toward this mission and are fully tax deductible. Scroll down to donate!
