Special Lighting Ceremony Scheduled

My father used to bring my siblings and me to watch Braves (then the Clouters and Canalmen) games after work. There was always a certain magic to seeing a baseball game on a summer’s evening under the lights. These lights and this field are a tribute to my father and all those wonderful memories that he gave us.

The lights will go on at a special lighting ceremony on June 11th at 8 p.m. at Doran Park, home of the Bourne Braves (http://www.bournebraves.org) and the Upper Cape Tech Rams. Representatives from the Bourne Braves, Upper Cape Tech, the Cape Cod Baseball League, and members of the Doran family will be on hand to celebrate the new lights that will make night games at Doran Park an exciting addition to this summer’s Bourne Braves season.

Approximately one year ago, the Doran family made a generous contribution toward the purchase and installation of lights for the ball field. On July 8, 2007 Doran Park was dedicated and named in honor of George Doran, Sr., a long-time Sagamore Beach resident and avid baseball fan.

According to John Doran, a resident of Sagamore Beach and Wellesley, MA, “My father used to bring my siblings and me to watch Braves (then the Clouters and Canalmen) games after work. There was always a certain magic to seeing a baseball game on a summer’s evening under the lights. These lights and this field are a tribute to my father and all those wonderful memories that he gave us.”

With additional funds needing to be raised for other projects at Doran Park, a capital campaign has been launched to raise $250,000. “We want Doran Park to be a model for other Cape Cod Baseball League fields,” John remarked. If everyone would step up to the plate – local businesses and fans – we can make Doran Park a true field of dreams that will be enjoyed by this and many generations to come.”

The public is invited to attend the lighting ceremony. Doran Park is located at the Upper Cape Tech Regional High School at 220 Sandwich, Rd. in Bourne, MA.
