Today’s news is buzzing about #Petaluma ‘s Lagunitas Brewing Co.. San Francisco Inside Scoop reports they had a really big year with an over 80% growth in case sales now ranking sixth in the world for craft beers. Big news in Chicago Tribune reports bottling started in their new Chicago facility which has a massive capacity to produce. Also New York Times reports about the new facility in Chicago. For all the storiesclick here for the Petaluma Magazine which provides links directly to these stories. This short video on their bottling in Chicago is a good update this Lagunitas Bottles Beer In Chicago.
#Petaluma American Little League (PALL) added lighting to their field. This was a $120,000 price tag and tons of volunteers and local companies to make this happen. PALL leases the Luchessi Park property from the city and relies only on donations and fundraisers to fund projects like this one. The Argus reports PALL donated the lights back to the city! The city will pay the utility bill.
Those who are not close to Little League or baseball may not know why this news is POSITIVE. We are short of baseball fields in our “baseball” town, and lights enable our leagues to play more games in the evening hours and will ease some of the scheduling challenges our local leagues face. It will even allow the leagues to add more teams and keep snack shacks open longer, which is the main source of PALLs revenue needed to support that program. Another not so obvious benefit this will have is making our field more attractive for tournament play. Tournament play attracts people from outside of our town and our local economy will get a small boost from travelers needing a place to stay, food to eat, and foot traffic for retail.
Congrats to PALL. Click here if you wish to subscribe to the Petaluma Baseball Magazine and subscribe for free.
