Sgt. Eric W. Slebodnik Sports Complex
Greenfield Township, Pennsylvania

In the 1970's, the Greenfield Lions Club cleared land on Hickory Ridge Road in Greenfield Township so the children in the township would have a field to play baseball. At the time the Greenfield Lions and the Greenfield A's were the township's first Little League baseball teams and the field was known as the Greenfield Township Municipal Lions Club Field.


 

In 2006, the sports complex was re-named in honor of Sgt. Eric W. Slebodnik, a resident of Greenfield Township, who died in Ar Ramadi, Iraq, when his M2A2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle was attacked by enemy forces using indirect fire. He was assigned to the Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 109th Infantry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division, New Milford, Pennsylvania. Sgt. Slebodnik died on September 28, 2005.

The Greenfield Township Baseball Association in conjunction with the Supervisors of Greenfield Township have made a commitment to improving and updating the complex so that not only will it be a place for baseball, but for anyone looking to enjoy time outdoors in Greenfield Township.

The following photographs show some before and after pictures of the continuous improvements being made to the complex.
