Yawkey Grant Money to Chatham and Harwich

by Dave B. in

No surprise, since this had been mentioned earlier, but the Yawkey Foundation has awarded grant money to Chatham and Harwich. See the story in today's Cape Cod Times : http://www.capecodonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080422/SPORTS/804220312 This means that Yarmouth-Dennis and Orleans are the only two Cape League teams who have not received this grant. Chatham will use a portion of their money to extend safety netting at Veterans Field. A few months ago, the town of Orleans voted against putting up safety netting at Eldredge Park and that decision may have cost them a chance to receive one of these grants this year.
