Brewers Donates Scoreboards to Parks
Brewers Foundation and U.S. Cellular donate $44,000 for new scoreboards in Lincoln and Sherman parks.
The new scoreboards will replace old, outmoded scoreboards in Sherman Park and at Hank Aaron Field in Lincoln Park. The Brewers Community Foundation and U.S. Cellular donated $44,000 for the new scoreboards.
“We have a very strong relationship with the Brewers,” said Guy Smith, executive director Milwaukee County Parks, “and the Brewers Community Foundation, and in this scenario, U.S. Cellular really stepped up to the plate, pun intended.”
Mary DeLaat, director of partnership activation for the foundation, told a committee of the county board that the Brewers and U.S. Cellular “are really looking to give back to the community and really impact youth baseball and seeing it continue to grow.”
The Henry Aaron Field in Lincoln Park was formerly the home field of the UW-Milwaukee baseball team. The team has been playing its games at Routine Field at Ballpark Commons in Franklin since 2020. The field in Sherman Park is a softball diamond.
