Mitchell Park Field # 1
Lighting Initiative Photo Gallery

East Taylor - Jackson Little League took on a huge undertaking in 2010 by installing lights at Mitchell Field # 1.  The project was financed by ETJ through funds and contributions.  REA (Rural Electric) provided a bucket truck and volunteer labor helped to set the poles with lights to soon follow.
