Boardman Community Baseball's Fields of Dreams complex was designed by Chuck Schafer to show his love for children and passion for the game of Little League baseball. Schafer was a longtime BCB board member and was the experienced architect who designed the fields on McClurg Road with spectators in mind. Schafer believed in giving back to the community and volunteered countless hours to the Boardman Community Baseball family. This scholarship celebrates his love for children, community and Little League baseball and softball.
The boys division has four age groups: 9- and 10-year-olds, 10- and 11-year-olds, 11- and 12-year-olds, and 13- and 14-year-olds.
The girls division is new this year and offers two divisions: 9- and 10-year-olds and 11- and 12-year-olds.
