FESTUS, MO – For a time, it appeared that the joys of summer with the crack of the bat and kids playing baseball might be silenced at the Twin City Little League in Festus, Mo. That’s because the lighting for the field was in bad need of repair and would not pass inspection for the 2017 season. But the Electrical Connection stepped to the plate and saved the season!
The IBEW/NECA partnership agreed to donate services to repair the lighting. NECA contractor Schaeffer Electric Company, Inc. teamed with IBEW Local 1 electricians Matt Copland and Chris Bank to repair field lights and bring them up to code. A full slate of baseball games for the summer is now underway.
“The Electrical Connection really came through in our time of need,” said Scott White, Twin Cities director of fields. “Schaeffer Electric and IBEW made sufficient improvements to the field lighting so we could kick off a busy 2017 schedule of games.”
Since 1939, Twin City Little League has been an anchor of the Festus and Crystal City communities. The non-profit Little League sanctioned program serves more than 400 boys and girls, ages three to 16 years old, in 12 different divisions of baseball and softball programs.
