Share your Hanna Nuttman memories

As the City of Decatur prepares to roll out a community fundraising campaign for the Hanna Nuttman ballpark project, we want to hear your Hanna Nuttman stories and see your photos, so that we can share them with the community throughout this fundraiser and construction.

The City of Decatur has announced plans to revitalize the Hanna Nuttman baseball and softball complex, and it’s going to take a great partnership between the city and the community to make it happen. We’re looking at raising $1 million for this project, with the hope for completion in 2019.

This fundraiser will also be a celebration of Hanna Nuttman and baseball and softball in our community; Rube Wynn field will turn 50 years old in 2019.

Do you have a memory of when you played baseball or softball at Hanna Nuttman? What about a memory as a coach, parent, family member? We want to hear your favorite “remember when” stories – sentimental, funny, etc.
