The Springfield Lucky Horseshoes are thrilled to announce “Friends of Robin Roberts Stadium,” a new, 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation dedicated to the revitalization and sustainability of Robin Roberts Stadium.

Baseball has been played on the grounds of Robin Roberts Stadium since 1925 when Reservoir Park opened and the Lucky Horseshoes are committed to calling the 2022 Ballpark Digest Summer Collegiate Ballpark of the Year home for years to come.

All revenue raised by Friends of Robin Roberts Stadium will go towards upgrades and maintenance projects at Springfield’s North End stadium. Over the past two years, the Lucky Horseshoes ownership group has invested numerous assets into the historic stadium, including a state-of-the-art videoboard, new beer garden, and the new inclusive, air-conditioned Next Gen group area.

“With the formation of Friends of Robin Roberts Stadium, we are excited to take another step towards the revitalization of this historic venue that has hosted both legends and legendary moments for so many people in our community,” said Lucky Horseshoes Chief Storyteller Jamie Toole. “We will work feverishly to ensure that this facility can be enjoyed by future generations, and we continue to celebrate the generations that have come before us.”

Throughout the 2023 Prospect League season and beyond, the Lucky Horseshoes will be raising money and hosting events to benefit the newly formed non-profit, including 50/50 raffles and stand-alone featured events.
