Fans that attend a baseball game at Christiansburg High School this spring will be kept updated on a new scoreboard. Thanks to a donation from the Christiansburg car dealership, Shelor Motor Mile, the lights were turned on earlier this week.
Christiansburg head coach Dale Nelson said Shelor Motor Mile once again showed their support for our local schools and community by giving back to these rewarding student athletes”.
“The Christiansburg High School Baseball Program along with The Christiansburg Baseball Booster Club would like to extend a huge thanks to the Shelor Motor Mile for their major contribution on the purchase of our new scoreboard. Without their help this would not have been possible,” he said.
The scoreboard had been used at Calfee Park for the minor league baseball teams, Pulaski Rangers, Blue Jays, Mariners and Yankees.
The school had been in need of an updated scoreboard for several years, but both the athletic department and booster club had no funds to purchase a new one.
Earlier this spring, the scoreboard was refurbished and later installed by Roanoke-based, Time Technologies. The company has provided service to several of the local high schools and Christiansburg Recreation Center.
The funding was attributed to Shelor’s “Growing The Future” program. The scoreboard, which is valued at approximately $17,000, is attributed not only by Shelor’s donation, but also from contributions by the Christiansburg High School’s Booster Club.
The scoreboard was replaced two years ago when the Motor Mile ownership purchased the Pulaski minor league baseball franchise.
Shelor Motor Mile and their Growing the Future Program is highly involved with the surrounding county local schools and have donated over $6 million since the inception of the program. For more information about Growing the Future, go to www.shelor.com/Growing the Future.
