The Ellerhost fields were used by over 450 players and 100 managers/coaches during the PHLL 2018 Spring, Tournament, and Fall seasons.

The fields were also used by the Pinole High School Varsity and Junior Varsity softball teams for their 2018 practices, regular season games, and playoff tournaments.
