Less than eight months after Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy first announced that it will renovate its softball and baseball fields, the school hosted a special dedication on April 12 when students, athletes, alumni and school administration officials came together to celebrate the new facilities with a "Bless the Bats" ceremony.

The ceremony included a hospitality tent with food and refreshments; introductions of alumni, former coaches and administrators; remarks by school and athletic administrators; and a formal blessing of the new fields by Notre Dame Corporate President Fr. Leon Olszamowski, s.m.

After the field dedication, Notre Dame's softball and baseball teams played home games vs. Marian and Royal Oak high schools, respectively. Baseball beat Royal Oak and softball took two from Marian.
