As you may know the town of Greenburgh recently opened Westchester's first cricket field. It's located on Central Ave in Hartsdale.(Richard Presser Park). Games are currently played Sunday mornings. It's enormously popular. Unfortunately, the demand is great- there are inadequate cricket fields.
I interviewed the leaders of the Greenburgh cricket committee about their successful effort on my WVOX radio program this past Friday. If you want to learn more about the game, why it's one of the most popular sports in the world and what the committee has been doing - please listen to the link below.
I have written to the school districts located within Greenburgh and to other public officials at the county and local levels encouraging them to also create cricket fields. I believe that cricket could be one of the most popular sports in our area. The cricket pitch at Richard Presser Park (formerly known as Webb Field ) is 22 yards in length and 10 feet in width.
Communities that are cricket field friendly will also make their localities more desirable for those seeking to relocate to our county.
