BBSC is proud to announce that we have installed a high-school like grass infield at the 90-foot field at Arnold Park Field 4, better known as Chuck Slaughter Memorial Field. The project cost almost $30,000, with BBSC and the Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks Department splitting the cost. The county supplied the sod and also put in water lines so the field could be watered. BBSC hired a field consultant, paid for all the physical work and for the top soil needed for the fields and worked the field after the sod was set down. We look forward to seeing our Babe Ruth, Colt and travel teams playing on the field next spring. We specifically would like to thank County Executive Steve Schuh; Director of Anne Arundel County Recreation and Parks, Rick Anthony; and Parks Administrator Mark Garrity for their help with this project.
BBSC Mission Statement
The Broadneck Baseball and Softball Club is comprised of the families of more than 600 children playing organized youth baseball and softball on the Broadneck Peninsula. We are affiliated with the Cal Ripken and Babe Ruth organizations in baseball and with the Pony organization in softball.
Our goal at BBSC is to provide an opportunity for Broadneck-area children of all levels of ability and interest to play softball and baseball in a safe environment, emphasizing sportsmanship and fair play. Most importantly, we simply want to make softball and baseball a fun and memorable experience for all. We believe that coaches and parents attending games and practices should be role models for our child athletes and should always conduct themselves in a way that exhibits sportsmanship and admirable conduct toward other players, coaches, umpires and parents. We believe in teaching the sports of baseball and softball and have a major focus on teaching fundamentals in a way that makes the sport fun. We believe that BBSC is an important part of the local Broadneck community and we strive to bring the community together in positive ways. We honor local volunteers and businesses through our annual BBSC Community Service Award and we recognize those players who exhibit outstanding sportsmanship no matter what their batting average or whether their teams place first or last. We firmly believe that childhood is a magical time of life and that coaches and parents should never lose sight of the fact that our players are children playing a game that should always be fun.
