The Shrewsbury Youth Football and Cheerleading Association will donate $150,000 worth of equipment to the school department to help upgrade the town's baseball and football fields.
The association will purchase a press box, viewing stand, sound system and lighting at the fields.
Nearby residents along Harriet Avenue initially opposed the idea, concerned that construction of bleachers might turn the fields into an after-hours hangout for youth. But school business manager Patrick Collins met with residents and the association to help broker a deal: the association will purchase portable bleachers that will be moved between the fields depending on the athletic season.
