JOSH REDDICK STADIUM
Today, @RealJoshReddick is in Anaheim with the @Astros, while 2,500 miles away one of Reddick’s lifelong dreams comes true.— Infield Chatter (@InfieldChatter) July 21, 2018
This morning is the grand opening of a ballpark Reddick built in Georgia for children with special needs.
We visited recently. It's remarkable. 👏👏👏 pic.twitter.com/C407Xyx71t
Josh always knew that if he made it to the Major Leagues he would give back as much as he could to his hometown. He wanted to leave a legacy, something that the youth of today and tomorrow could take advantage of. When the opportunity arose, Josh couldn't pass it up. Josh donated nearly $1 million of his own money to build a field that could be accessed by all realms of individuals and athletes. The field features artificial turf and handicapped-accessible dugouts that are level with the playing field, making it the area's only fully accessible baseball field for children with special needs. He wanted to make sure no kids were left out of the opportunity to experience baseball. Josh is beyond proud of how Josh Reddick Stadium turned out and he can't wait to see how much of an impact it has on youth from around the country. It truly is a dream come true!
