Secure the Future for Youth Baseball

Highlander has been the home of Youth Baseball in Hacienda Heights for almost 40 years. Through community funds from our Founders, Highlander was built with the intention it would always stay in the community for generations to come. It houses 4 fields (3 little league grade, 1 senior field), a snack shack, and parking for 100+ cars making it a One-Stop Shop for baseball.

Highlander shares the parcel of land with Wedgeworth Elementary, who are in the process of finalizing their school expansion project. It will become a K-8 grade school and the new plans would be taking out 2 fields (1 LL field and the senior field - both with lights). 

There are no contingency plans set for the Little League program by the School district (which owns the land). Currently there are 400+ kids in the program, running 30+ games on average a week at the Highlander Complex. 

We want to make sure the community is informed in regards to the Highlander Baseball Fields and the plans for the new school. We want everyone to take part of the decision making since it will impact 400+ in-district kids. We know the significance these fields have to not just present and past players & families, but to the the community as well, for it was a community effort that made Highlander possible almost 40 years ago.

We have TWO main objectives:

1) Save the Highlander Complex and have the Wedgeworth Plans be modified to accommodate the land the fields currently take up.

2) Have a fully funded contingency plan in conjunction with the Wedgeworth Project. This plan shall offer what is currently available to the Hacienda Heights Little League and shall be newly built in order to accommodate the Hacienda Heights Little League displacement. This shall include 4 fields (2 with lights), snack shack with functional kitchen, meeting room and parking for 100+ vehicles.

We are willing to work with the School District and our local representatives to ensure we find a common ground and find a solution BOTH SIDES can be happy with.
