How you can help Crabs Baseball …

• Donate to the Ballpark Improvement Fund
The Humboldt Crabs Baseball organization continues to look for ways to upgrade the City of Arcata’s ballpark facilities not only for the Crabs, but for all the area high school, little league and legion baseball teams that also rent the Arcata Ball Park. The Crabs along with our sponsors and partners have donated several items to the ballpark over the years such as the scoreboard, foul poles, a batting cage, The Alchemy Distillery (Boldt) water filtration system, nets, fences, cement walkways, coolers and concessions equipment, barbecues, ticket booth structure, new bleachers, PA speakers, media and radio booth equipment, etc. Some future projects you can help us with: new dugouts, a fresh coat of paint, a new facade or entrance, better lighting at the front entrance, turnstiles, fixed exit/enter signs or other signage, pressure washing and cleaning of the nets and cement walls, replacing the broken wood in the chain link fences, a new scoreboard, better PA system, etc.  If you have any ideas on how we can help to improve the City of Arcata’s Ballpark for a better fan and baseball team experience, let us know or click on our Donate button if you’d like to donate funds or materials for any of these ideas. You can also contact the City of Arcata’s Parks and Recreation Department to donate.
