Official Dedication of Thackston Field at Randolph Park
Myers Park Trinity Little League is most honored to hold the formal dedication of Thackston Field on Saturday, April 17th at 4:00pm at Randolph Park. When Barry Thackston passed in August of 2018, it left our League with an incredibly heavy heart and a volunteer coaching void that had not existed for the 43 years prior. Since 1976, Coach Thackston had shared his love of baseball with countless players and families as the many seasons turned into years, and the many years turned into decades, in what became a truly remarkable commitment to volunteerism at MPTLL.
With tremendous gratitude, we are looking forward to welcoming the Thackston Family to this most important field dedication ceremony. While COVID-19 gathering restrictions still remain in place, we would ask that only those who were closest to Coach Thackston plan to join us. At any point in time thereafter, we would welcome you to visit the Coach Thackston Memorial Plaque that has been installed in what was previously referred to as Field 11; and what is now appropriately referred to as Thackston Field.
