Garfield Diamond Sports Boosters are hosting a ballpark clean-up day at Garfield on Saturday, February 10th for players and parents to fix up the fields, dugouts, batting cages and get our facilities ready for baseball and softball season. Players can get credit for community service hours for this project.
Booster club will provide pizza and beverages for the volunteer crew of baseball/softball workers from 11:30am-12:00pm.
Baseball players, parents and coaches will be working on baseball diamond + batting cages from 9:30am-11:30am.
Softball players, parents and coaches will be working on softball diamonds + cages from 12:00pm-2:00pm.
Please bring gloves, shoes, and clothing you don't mind getting a little dirty as we will be out there rain or shine. The parks department will be providing us with some tools for the project. We hope you are able to join us!

Pay Online for Winter Baseball Workouts
The Garfield Diamond Sports Boosters, Sluggers fall ball coach Scott Honican and a few other Garfield parents and alumni will be offering winter workouts for potential Bulldogs ballplayers. These practices are optional and are not required for participation in the Garfield baseball program during the high school season. They are an opportunity to help get players ready for the spring season. The Garfield coaching staff has no role in these baseball workouts as they are during the out-of-season period. Here is the info you need to know:
SATURDAYS 12:00pm-2:00pm @ Garfield HS
SUNDAYS 12:00-2:00pm @ Athletic Form (1031 6th Ave S)
Players should have adequate protection (athletic supporter & cup) for all baseball practices.
As usual, no sunflower seeds are allowed at Garfield or at Athletic Form -- this includes spitting seeds in a cup or bottle.
All players will need to fill out a liability waiver at Athletic Form in January on date of their first workout. Some of you that have already been using the facility with your select teams or for baseball lessons may already have taken care of this.
Cost is $60 per player.
Pay Here with Credit/Debit Card
Cash or check payable to "Garfield Diamond Sports Boosters" also will be accepted.
If the player fee is an issue, please talk to booster club president Steve Barker (email@example.com) concerning scholarship possibilities. Our booster club does not want cost to be an obstacle to participation for any player!
We realize these time slots may conflict with some of your select team baseball practices or baseball lessons with private instructors during the winter. It is impossible to find a slot that works for all 50 or so of you (and is not already reserved at Athletic Form). Hopefully you are able to participate if you are free during those weekend time frames.
Watch the slideshow created for the season-end banquet!
