From fields of dreams to fields of weeds, Brantford’s numerous baseball diamonds are gearing up for another season. While, unfortunately, Eagle Place is a diamond desert, many communities are home to fields both big and small. Whether you’re practicing for tryouts, playing a friendly game of kickball or letting your dog run free, the local community ball park is a place for everyone to enjoy. Getting outside for play and exercise is crucial to both personal and community wellbeing.
Baseball parks are available all over the city of Brantford. Staff Photo.
However you make use of your field, make sure to get out and use it! Watch the ball get launched out of the park, steal a kiss under the bleachers, witness the fireworks display… Despite how you feel about the sport, magic happens at the ball park.
