The Town of Cabri along with the Cabri Minor Ball Association is thrilled to announce that, thanks to an investment of $69,750 from the Government of Canada, we will be undertaking an upgrade to our Cabri Ball Diamonds. The total cost of the project is approximately $140,000, with the Cabri Minor Ball Association and the Town of Cabri providing the remaining funds through other grants, fundraising initiatives, and donations.

 

Federal funding for this initiative is provided through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF), which is administered in Saskatchewan by PrairiesCan.

 

Cabri Ball Diamonds Upgrade Project

The project will include:

  • New dugouts and benches for both diamonds 1 and 2
  • Grass to shale conversion on diamond 1
  • New fencing components on both diamond 1 and 2
  • Construction of a new concession/washroom facility
  • Installation of new power service

 

Project Benefits

Our Project will benefit the members of our community along with all those who participate in the great sport of baseball, softball and slo-pitch! The Project will renew our community pride by revitalizing one of our integral green spaces. It will allow for hosting of events at the ball park which will bring an influx of people to our community benefiting our local businesses such as our motel, restaurants, gas station, grocery store, bank, campground plus many others as well as feature our green spaces such as the community garden, spray park and playground. It will give our residents the opportunity to showcase our friendly town and excellent new ball space which will help boost our economic recovery following the Covid-19 pandemic.
