The St. Johns County baseball fields at Durbin Park were in need of dugout improvements. During practices and games, many Julington Creek Baseball (JCB) players leave their helmets and gloves on the dugout floor resembling a typical 11-year old’s bedroom. Players looking for their gloves or hats had to explore the minefield of equipment within the disorganized dugouts. To help JCB players manage their equipment during games and practices, the local Mandarin Boy Scouts Troop 321 came to the rescue with the construction of new helmet cubbies. The Scouts coordinated the design of the helmet cubbies, developed the list of building materials, and assisted with construction. Led by Mr. Doug Grimaldi of Troop 321 and JCB coach, the project took over 250 volunteer hours to complete. Each of the eight dugouts at Durbin Park now has a 12-helmet cubbie for players to store their hats, gloves, water bottle, etc. Mark Harvey, JCB President, said, “JCB is grateful for the extensive amount of time and effort our local Mandarin Boy Scout Troop 321 and the many JCB parents who embraced the completion of this valuable project at Durbin Park.” The JCB Board is greatly appreciative for Coach Doug’s long hours at the ballfields and for the assistance by Chad Carper of Home Built Woodworking of St. Johns, Bryan Strazinsky of Three J’s Painting, Dave Alberts and parents of the JCB 11U Cobras, and several other volunteers.
