THANK YOU ATLANTA BRAVES!

 

In conjunction with the Braves moving to Cobb, they have volunteered to provide facility improvements to Fullers Park. The Braves' Field Director Ed Mangan recently visited the Pony/Colt Field to make some great improvements. Ed and his crews replaced the deteriorating safety nets, added infield mix, edged turfgrass, laser graded and rolled the infield and rebuilt the pitchers mound. Looks and plays great! Ed plans to return this summer to replace the infield turf. Thank you Ed and the Braves!

SPLOST CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

Demolition and construction of three new concession buildings is underway.  During construction we will operate concessions from a POD trailer.  With restrooms also gone, the county has provided porta-potties. We regret the inconvenience during this construction phase, but look forward to the new buildings. 

The playground has been replaced and is much improved. Feedback from kids has been very positive.


East Side Baseball Concussion Policy
 

East Side Baseball Association (ESBA) recognizes that adolescent athletes are particularly vulnerable to the effects of concussions. 
 
To comply with the passage of House Bill 284, and to ensure the ongoing safety of our youth athletes, ESBA has adopted the following protocols effective January 1, 2014:
 
  • Prior to the beginning of each athletic season, an informational sheet emphasizing the risks of concussions shall be distributed to the parents/guardians of all youth athletes.
 
  • Any youth athlete who participates in youth athletics and exhibits signs of a concussion must be removed from the game, practice, competition or tryout and be evaluated by a health care provider
  • Any youth athlete who is deemed by a health care provider as having sustained a concussion shall not be permitted to return to play until he/she receives clearance from a health care provider for a full or graduated return to play.​
