Ascension Parish President Kenny Matassa was pleased to present a check of financial support to the Team of Dreams group, which aims to build Ascension Parish’s first all abilities baseball field.

“It is my honor to be able to help this group accomplish this very worthwhile and needed project,” said Matassa. “I also want to thank the Parish Council for agreeing to help in the funding.”

Team of Dreams is a project of some of the members of the Leadership Ascension Class of 2019. Its goal is to convert the tee ball field on South Irma Boulevard in Gonzales into an ADA compliant baseball facility. In April the Parish Council appropriated $50,000 and dedicated the parish-owned field to assist in the project.
