GT Church Pavilion

GT Church and Baseball Charities have announced a partnership to build a pavilion at the new Savage 61 Dream Field in Berks County. 

“This pavilion will be the center of meetings, celebrations, and gatherings and we couldn’t be prouder to have a partnership with GT Church to make this happen”, said Executive Director of Baseballtown Charities Tonya Petrunak.  “From our very first meeting, it was apparent GT Church had a passion for helping the Baseballtown Dream League build a place that will be inclusive and truly welcoming for children with special needs and their families.”

The GT Church Pavilion will be 24 x 40 and located down the left field line.  There will also be a GT Church misting station located near the pavilion.  As a part of the partnership, GT Church will be sending volunteers to assist when games are being played at the Savage 61 Dream Field. 

“The Dream League is making it possible for children of all abilities to participate in America’s favorite past time”, said GT Church lead pastor Bryan Koch.  “GT Church is excited to team up with Baseballtown Charities to provide this opportunity for the families of Berks County.”

Construction of the Savage 61 Dream Field will continue throughout the winter.  Registration has begun for the Spring-2018 season for both weekday and weekend leagues.  Those interested in registering can sign up online at baseballtown.org.  Opening Day is scheduled for April 21.
