By Mark Shuller - Email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) — The Reds Community Fund is looking for one special field renovation project for 2011. If your local youth baseball or softball home field could use some help, complete an application today for the "Home Field Makeover." The field will be located in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky or West Virginia.

Applications are available online at www.reds.com/community, and are being accepted now through December 15th. The winning field makeover project may include but is not limited to: infield and outfield restoration, field grading and leveling, new fencing and backstops, new infield dirt, and grass seeding.

The project will also include support from Reds field vendors, a visit by members of the Reds grounds crew and other amenities. The makeover recipient will be announced during the Reds Winter Caravan in January. Since 2006, the Reds Community Fund has renovated over 300 fields across Reds Country.
