Field of Dreams celebrates Opening Day

By NewsLine Staff

Field of Dreams held its 2018 Opening Day on Feb. 3, a chilly Saturday morning at Aberdeen Park. In its eighth season, the Field of Dreams is a baseball league for children with special needs. This year, there are 10 teams with total of 154 players registered.

There are two innings in each game and each player bats each inning. The league has games each Saturday until April 7, with no games on March 17 due to Spring Break.

The Bartram Trail High School softball and baseball teams came out to volunteer as buddies for opening day. Many other volunteers and parents also came out to support the Field of Dreams.

This season the league is in the process of fundraising for a 7,850-square foot boundless playground that will be accessible to children of all abilities. The league’s goal is to open the $650,000 facility in 2020. There is a GoFundMe page ( where supporters may donate to the cause.
