For many with physical or mental disabilities, participating in America’s Greatest Pastime, baseball, can be a challenge. Thanks to The South Jersey Field of Dreams, that challenge can be easily overcome. Borgata team members participated in a special event with the organization on May 6, and have always lent a hand to Field of Dreams to help bring the fun of baseball to everyone.
The South Jersey Field of Dreams is a place where physically and mentally disabled children and adults can play and participate in baseball. The city of Absecon has generously donated a new baseball field at their Dr. Jonathan Pitney Recreation Park for the organization’s use. With the support of a number of individuals, Field of Dreams has been working hard to turn the Absecon field into a place where any child or adult, regardless of their physical abilities, can play ball.
Generous contributors to the organization have seen the Absecon venue grow to include an electric scoreboard, a concession stand serving up free snacks, and a team store complete with Field of Dream branded swag. Borgata team members and other volunteers assist the organization’s special athletes in any way necessary. Since each athelete is unique, the superstar team of volunteers have to adjust and adapt their coaching techniques to make sure that everyone has fun.
