WFYFL BOARD OF DIRECTORS
We worked on upgrading the fields in the Jim Barnett Park (Preston Fields) to create both an A Team Field and a B Team field. We've added scoreboards and our next project will be to upgrade the concession stand and create a new press box. We rely on the money we receive from our registrations and donations from local businesses to make all this happen. We have so many people on board that donate time and/or funds to help us continue to thrive.
