The John J. Wood “Field of Dreams”

The John J. Wood “Field of Dreams”

 August, 24, 2012

Over 5 years ago, the founders of SOL International Foundation had a dream of a youth baseball field.  This dream only became a reality due to a generous land lease from Daine Wood Etches and Marylynn Wood Hartsel, daughters of Catherine Wood and John J Wood – a life-long baseball fan for whom this field is named. 

 

Construction began under the watchful eye and guidance of Bill Etches in 2007.  In the summer of 2007, the first SOL youth baseball game took place on this field. 

 

Now 5 years later, thanks to Kelcy Warren, Richard Warren, RECO, the Roatan Rotary Club, and Green Hill Energy Solutions, we have the privilege of hosting the first ever night game in the Bay Islands!

 

There is a rich tradition of baseball on the island of Roatan, and SOL International Foundation is honored to continue in this tradition.  We hope this “Field of Dreams” continues to thrive as a community gathering area for years to come.
