A “Wall of Fame” will be erected on the World Series Park building during the 2018 season.  This will be a permanent plaque that will list the names of people, businesses and organizations that make a minimum donation of $100.  Donations can also be made in honor of others or in memory of past loved ones.  The 4 foot by 8 foot plaque will be located on the field side of the building.

Since this opportunity to donate to World Series Park was first announced, over 30 donations have been received.  Donated funds will be used for the future upkeep and improvements to the park, which this season celebrates its fourteenth season.   Since its inception in 2004, World Series Park’s goal has always been to provide a first-class facility for baseball in Saugus and create more opportunity for the youth of Saugus to play baseball.

The August 2017 vandalism, necessitating the need for a new, costly security system and the complete renovation of the infield project represented some pretty steep expenses.  Donations to the Wall of Fame will help to recoup some of these expenses.  The Wall of Fame will provide a way to show appreciation to the very generous people who support World Series Park by listing their names on a plaque.

Donations to World Series Park for inclusion on the Wall of Fame should be sent to World Series Park 8 Holden Ave. Saugus, MA 01906.  Checks should be made payable to World Series Park.  The World Series Park Committee is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization.  Donations are tax-exempt.  Donations can also be made through the General Electric Matching Gifts Program.  For any questions please contact Bob Davis at 781-233-4555.
