California high school players receive lights for cages
Thanks to partial funding from the Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees in California, the Alisa Viejo high school baseball team will have lights installed in its batting cages, the Orange County Register reports.
The baseball teams at the city's high school - Aliso Niguel - had to use the lighted cages in the nearby city of Woodfield Park during night practices. The same cages were used by the city's Little League teams, occasionally creating scheduling conflicts.
The city of Aliso Viejo will supply 75 percent of the installation cost, with the remaining $6,500 to be funded by the school district, the Laguna Niguel Patch reports. The city's cages haven't had lights since Aliso Niguel High opened in 1994.
"We're delighted that the school board approved the project," Glenn Yasui, director of administrative services for Aliso Viejo, told the news source. "It's a nice, win-win project all the way around."
