The Pinole Hercules Little League Board of Directors thanks the mowing team volunteers for their time and support in maintaining the Ellerhorst grass fields and common areas.

The Ellerhorst fields are leased by West Contra Costa School District to Pinole Hercules Little League (PHLL) with responsibility for mowing and maintaining the grounds.

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.
