223 Baseball is Proud to announce our new facility

 In partnership with our local Fire Department and our Post 223 American Legion, Heroes Memorial Park is now being completed and will be the finest amateur baseball facility in Central Maryland. The playing surface has been laser leveled, with a complete replacement of all playing areas. Our Bermuda grass turf is unique in this area and allows for the experience of playing on a professional baseball diamond. Dugout construction is set to begin in shortly and will complete this amazing new ball park.
