A brand new baseball field is born from the effort of students, staff, and the generous members of Sutter Health, the River Cats, and Raley Field. How did we pay for the new fields? Sutter Health and the River Cats gave Foothill High School a grant for $50,000.

They believed in FHS so much that they donated the money. The baseball field has a new infield, grass behind home plate, a new scoreboard, new bleachers, a PA system, new fencing, and a snack bar behind the backstop. The JV field was last redone about four years ago, but the plan is to make it an all grass infield.

"It's getting better each and every day," said JV coach Gabe Delgado. "We have to put a lot more work in it. The district is helping out a lot. They got new dirt and came out every day, so that helped out a lot."

The varsity infield cost about $20,000, as was the outfield (from the district), and everything else was about $10,000. The grant is offered to others every year. FHS got invited to apply for the it, and was chosen.
