Our league has known for some time that adding batting cages to the Westgate fields would provide facilities vital to our kids' ongoing development. Our league also knew that batting cages would come at a steep cost.
Now, that cost has been significantly reduced: The Falls Church Kiwanis Little League won a $10,000 grant from the Delta Dreams Grants, run by Delta Airlines and the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation. The money will be used to help pay for the new batting cages and reduces the amount the league otherwise would have drawn from savings.
That, in turn, means we are better positioned to pay for additional facilities and investments we may need.
We would like to thank Delta Airlines and the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation for their generosity. We also want to thank the members of our board who worked so hard on preparing and filing the application for this grant. Thanks to their efforts and careful stewardship, our league is well positioned for the future.
