On the heels of Pitching for Peace (see photos from the event by 101.1 The Wiz), details concerning P&G and the Reds investment in Hirsch Recreation Center are being released.
The group of over 500 volunteers will renovate two baseball fields and add a third diamond, they will also build a second greenhouse and implement building and landscaping improvements at Gabriel’s Place.
It’s hoped that this work will encourage more children in Avondale to participate in youth baseball activities. The added hoop-house capacity and upgraded landscaping around Gabriel’s Place will certainly support the growth of the Marketplace. Beginning June 6th the Marketpalce will be open Thursdays from 5-7 p.m., and will feature live entertainment and cooking demonstrations.
