Arundel Senior High School has received well-deserved recognition throughout the years for its outstanding baseball teams.
The teams have won 13 county championships, 10 regional titles, seven state championships and one national championship.
A May 3 article in USA Today that rated community parks listed Arundel High as having "one of the best high school baseball facilities in the USA."
There is, however, one area that is not championship caliber: the dugouts.
The dugouts do not provide teams with adequate seating, storage or protection.
Arundel administrators hope to fix that, and have devised a fund-raiser that will let individuals and businesses that donate $50 have their name or business engraved on a brick used in the construction.
Forms for recording your donation and name to be engraved can be obtained through varsity or junior varsity baseball players, the athletic department or by contacting Carole Fox, (410) 721-4311.
Today is the last day to make reservations for the West Anne Arundel County Chamber of Commerce Business Connection on Thursday.
The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Nevamar Division of International Paper, 8339 Telegraph Road in Odenton.
Participants can tour the Nevamar plant. The cost is $8 for chamber members and $20 for nonmembers. Prospective members are welcome.
Call (410) 672-3422 to make reservations.
