|Preston Thompson Ballpark|
The dedication ceremony for the new Preston Thompson Ballpark is scheduled
for February 24, 2007, at 11:30 A.M. The sign and monument will be in place
before then but that will be the official naming ceremony. We want as many
of Preston's student athletes as possible to be in attendance. Especially if
you played on the 1953 state championship team, please make every effort to
be at that ceremony. We hope to have a number of other ex Poly baseball
players there whether they played under Coach Thompson or not.
Please mark your calendar now and plan to be there for the ceremony.
As mentioned in the last issue of the Parakeet the cost of the sign and monument at the ballpark is being covered by private donations. The association has formed a foundation, the Poly Alumni Foundation, with tax-exempt status to collect funds for this and other projects. All the funds for the present project at the ballpark are tax-deductable so if you have already contributed and would like to have documentation for tax purposes let us know. If you have not contributed please consider doing so.
