 Park board to pursue grant for softball field

The Hermann Park Board received support from the Gasconade County R-1 School District to pursue a grant that would improve the ball field adjacent to the elementary school.

Several members from the Hermann Park Board appeared at last Thursday's school board meeting, asking the R-1 school district to partner with them in seeking a Pepsi Refresh Grant.

Their goal is to win a $50,000 grant to help with providing a softball field on the land owned by the school district. The space, located behind what was the old middle school, has been used for the Hermann Junior League in the summer.

Susan Lenger, a member of the park board, said the board would like to convert the area into a softball field dedicated for the Hermann High School Lady Bearcats. In the off-season the local little league teams could use it, and would be a fenced-in area that the elementary school would also use.

"The Lady Bearcats would have their own field," said Lenger. "And if they would ever want to hold a tournament, they could also use the city park field (Dick Ochsner Ballpark)."

The Hermann High girls' softball team plays its home games at Dick Ochsner Ballpark at the city park.

Hermann's junior league football teams also use the old middle school field between West 8th and West 9th for practice fields. They would be given some space to practice west and south of the HHS athletic complex.

Todd Anderson, high school athletic director, elementary school principal Steve Heidger and softball coach Diane Shoemaker have all approved the idea.

Lenger said the park board is not asking for money from the school district for the project, but   was only seeking its support in applying for a $50,000 grant from Pepsi.

She said on Dec. 1 the park board's proposal was accepted as a Pepsi Refresh Grant project.

Lenger added that a campaign would be started later to get people to vote on-line for their project.

If the Hermann Park Board garners enough support with online voting, it would receive $50,000 for the project.

There are four categories of entires based on dollar-size:  for a $5,000 award; a $25,000 award; a $50,000 award; and a $250,000 award.  Each month, 10 different contestants are chosen in the first three categories, two winners get $250,000 each.  That's $1.3 million awarded to 32 local community projects, small businesses, and individuals each month.

The Hermann entry is in the $50,000 category of the health category.  The $50,000 would be spent as follows:

    * $20,000 for a small concession stand and storage closet
    * $14,000 for dugouts and backstop materials
    * $10,000 for relocation of lights to new field
    * $  4,000 for fencing
    * $  2,000 for field prep, sod repair and striping

This month (January 2011), the Hermann little league/softball park is one of the thousand projects.  .

This Hermann entry in the Pepsi Refresh Project is sponsored by the City of Hermann Parks & Recreation Board and the Gasconade County R-1 School District.

It costs nothing to vote.  You can vote every day.
