fieldofdreamsThe Fifth Annual 'Field of Dreams' Wiffle Ball Tournament and Fundraiser will be held on Saturday, May 10th at the Boston Athletic Club in South Boston. 

"Boston Police Superintendent Paul Fitzgerald organized 'The Field of Dreams' Wiffle Ball Tournament and Fundraiser five years ago after his nine year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. 

This exciting daylong event consists of a children’s tournament in the morning, and an adult tournament in the afternoon.  The event, which also includes food, music and a free t-shirt for all who participate, will have activities for kids to enjoy such as face painting, a fantastic petting zoo, Simon says and more!"

All proceeds will go to the Joslin Diabetes Center. 'The Field of Dreams' Fundraiser has already raised over $207,950.
