When the current Atwood-Hammond Youth League (AHYL) was seated in the spring of 2021, a list of needs was identified in order to continue to provide quality facilities for students residing the towns of Atwood, Hammond, Pierson and Garrett.

Over the course of the past few years, and in partnership with the Village of Atwood, two major upgrades have taken place at the ball diamonds in Atwood. Major field resurfacing took place in the fall of 2020 prior to the summer of 2021 season.

The next order of business…upgrade the scoreboards at the ball diamonds, one of which was the original scoreboard installed on the southeast field. Through two Diamond Level sponsorships, Kirby Medical Group and Arthur Oral Health Care, two brand new scoreboards with LED lighting were purchased and installed at the park this past spring. Without these two sponsors, and all of the other sponsorships received, this project could not have happened.

The AHYL would like to thank Arthur Oral Health Care, Kirby Medical Group, and ALL of their 2022 sponsors. These local businesses continue to help in providing quality facilities for these student’s year in and year out. Without them, this project would not have been possible. An additional special thanks to Harris Companies of Atwood for storing the scoreboards between delivery and installation.

It takes a village…and some sponsorships…to power quality youth sports programs!
