My Students

Stamford has always been a city with deep baseball history and a very strong love for the sport. History and love continue at our High School. Our players have grown up playing in the local youth leagues and now represent their high school, and their city, with the highest level of pride. The WHS baseball players are a focused and driven group of student-athletes with many succeeding both on the field and in the classroom. We are extremely proud that almost 100% of our seniors graduate and go on to college.

In recent years, budget cuts to the athletics program have made it difficult to keep up with the number of coaches and the equipment needed to stay competitive in the highly talented FCIAC.

In addition, field space and gymnasium availability make it very difficult for our Junior Varsity and Freshman programs to get what they need to grow as players and as a program. Our athletes are members of a diverse, highly populated, urban school community. Over half of our school population are English Language Learners, and in our classroom alone you will find a variety of languages and cultures are represented.

My Project

Anyone who sees our baseball field knows that it is a total embarrassment. Our players do not get the chance to develop a sense of pride and home field advantage. This season, our goal is to help maintain it ourselves to the best of our abilities. In past years, there were many days that the field was just unusable due to a lack of proper maintenance....and that is okay. When you do the work yourself you develop a sense of responsibility and pride. The brooms we are asking for will be used by the players to sweep our dugouts and to sweep the dirt off of the grass after practice and games. This is a necessary piece of equipment for field maintenance. That is what we are hoping to achieve via materials used for this project.
