Carpenter Field on the campus of Elkins High School (7007 Knights Court, Missouri City TX 77459) will host the ceremony for the formal naming of the baseball field at Elkins High at 1 p.m. on Jan. 23.
With the approval to formally name the baseball field at Elkins High School “Rick Carpenter Field” approved by the FBISD Board of Trustees last May, the formal field dedication ceremony will take place prior to the Alumni Game on January 23.
Numerous Elkins alums will be returning to their home field for this event and to participate in the game. The Elkins Baseball Program welcomes the Missouri City & Sugar Land community to attend. There will be no admittance charge for this event.
“Having our field named after Coach Carpenter is an obviously well-deserved honor,” EHS head baseball coach Tyler Porter said. “Coach Carpenter not only started the program and led it to national recognition; he more importantly impacted the lives of countless young men. The impact he had on the kids he coached is still reverberating in Fort Bend today.”
