Our home field is at the Sgt. Eric W. Slebodnik Memorial Sports Complex on Hickory Ridge Road in Greenfield Twp., PA. ( for directions to our field click here .)

The sports complex was named in honor of Sgt. Eric W. Slebodnik, a resident of Greenfield Township, who died in Ar Ramadi, Iraq, when his M2A2 Bradley Fighting Vehicle was attacked by enemy forces using indirect fire. He was assigned to the Army National Guard's 1st Battalion, 109th Infantry Regiment, 28th Infantry Division, New Milford, Pennsylvania. Sgt. Slebodnik died on September 28, 2005 and the Sports Complex was dedicated in his name on September 30, 2006.

As parents and coaches it is important for us to share with our children the story of Sgt. Slebodnik so they will know how his sacrifice allows us the freedom to enjoy playing baseball here in Greenfield Township.

The GTBA honors Sgt. Slebodnik by working with the Greenfield Township Supervisors to make lasting improvements to the sports complex so that children will always have a place to play in Greenfield Township.

You too can support Sgt. Slebodnik by making a donation to the Eric Slebodnik Memorial Scholarship for History which has been set up in his honor at the Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
