The young athletes of Toms River East Little League are now the recipients of $386,250 in federal American Rescue Plan Act funds distributed by the Township.
Funds will be used by the leadership of the league to improve the safety of their field on Windsor Ave with new turf for the infield and outfield and new lights for night games.
In addition to improving safety for the championship-caliber Little League baseball teams, the improvements will enable the league to compete to be a regional tournament location.
“TRELL is a vital member of the Toms River community, contributing mightily to development of our children. They consistently make our Township proud and represent us well throughout the country,” said Mayor Mo Hill in a press release. “I thank TRELL President Tommy Noone, Township Liaison Bob Gould, Todd Frazier, as well as the entire TRELL board for their leadership and assistance in making this project a reality.”
