MILWAUKEE - Brewers Community Foundation will dedicate a new baseball diamond at Sherman Park (3000 N. Sherman Blvd.) on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. Brewers players Rickie Weeks and Khris Davis will join Brewers alum Larry Hisle and Executive Director - Brewers Community Foundation Cecelia Gore in the ribbon- cutting ceremony.
Over the years, the Sherman Park baseball diamond had fallen into disrepair, making it unsuitable for organized play and leaving neighborhood youth with fewer positive activities to occupy their time. Thanks to the efforts of organizations like Brewers Community Foundation, the newly-remodeled diamond will host youth baseball and softball games adjacent to the Mary Ryan Boys & Girls Club.
