Hurricane Harvey devastated the coastal town of Rockport, Texas. Besides destroying homes and businesses, the Little League Complex was badly damaged, imperiling the Little League season. A donor with deep roots in the area committed to rebuilding the facilities to serve as a beacon of hope during the long reconstruction.
The effort was divided into two phases. During Phase I, the design team, donors, volunteers and the community came together to reestablish the fields and backstops in time for the 2018 opening games. Phase opened for the 2019 season.
Rockport has always identified with the native, “weathered oaks” – even more so after the storm when the oaks shielded structures from harm. The new design features these tough trees to symbolize the resilience of the town.
During the 2018 season, the Rockport-Fulton Little League brought home five district championship titles, the best performance in their history.
