October 24, 2012–With the help of FPU and a few other local organizations, Joe Velardi Field will soon be ‘home base’ to female softball players of all ages and ability levels throughout Fernandina Beach. FPU employees Mark Cutshaw and Charles Wilkes were recently thanked via the local newspaper for playing a key role in FPU’s contribution, which included donating and installing the five concrete poles needed to hang protective netting everywhere from the dugouts to the first and thirst base lines.
