THE JORDAN CASEY WRIGHT FOUNDATION RECEIVES GRANT FROM
THE BASEBALL TOMORROW FUND
(Celeste, TX) (Thursday, July 16, 2015) – The Jordan Casey Wright Foundation announced today that it was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $127,180 from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF). The grant will support Celeste Independent School District and provide funding for field lights. The field lighting equipment will be provided at a significant discount through a partnership between BTF and Musco Lighting, Inc., a leader in the sports lighting industry.
Purchasing field lights for Celeste High School’s baseball field has been more than fifteen-years-in-the-making with the first attempt made in 1999 when the field was originally constructed. Even though the task at hand came with an enormous price tag, $260,561.68 to be exact, this was the JCW Foundation’s first goal because baseball was Jordan’s favorite sport and this was an already-established desire shared by our small but strong community. We are excited because installing Musco’s Light Structure Green™ lighting system significantly extends practice field availability during the regular season and it allows both summer teams to begin practicing later in the evening, avoiding the extremely hot temperature of a Texas summer. Furthermore, Celeste can finally host tournaments throughout the year, and regular season home games can be scheduled later in the evening so that more community members, especially parents, can attend games after work.
