Project Description

Ford Heights Baseball

Upland Design assisted the Ford Heights Park District with their first capital project by leading the design team and guiding both staff and meeting multiple grant requirements. So that the new field would support games for a variety of ages, multiple base locations and a moveable mound were included. The field was carefully positioned away from a utility easement with wood poles while still keeping optimum orientation for the players.

Contributors of grants, reduced fees, leadership and labor include:
• The Baseball Tomorrow Fund
• Cubs Charities through its Diamond Project grants program
• Pitcher Jason Hammel donated prize money from a Hefty charity contest
• McHugh Construction
• RE Hamilton Consulting Engineers
• Cook County Sheriff staff and S.W.A.P. program
• US Army Reserve
• Ford Heights Park District board members
• Upland Design Ltd
