Saturday morning at Memorial Field in New Ipswich

It was a busy Saturday morning in New Ipswich. I volunteered at the Green Center in the morning and then headed over to Memorial Field.

The kids were having a great time playing ball. This batter did a nice job of hitting the ball on this pitch. Information about the summer schedule of baseball and softball can be found on the New Ipswich Parks and Recreation Website.
Play Ball

I noticed this memorial sign at the ball field.

Bob Gammel owned his own business Gammel Electric in New Ipswich.

He had  love for his community and involvement with the sports for all the children in the town. He was a basketball, baseball and soccer coach and when not doing that he would be seen showing his support for all the games in town located near his home at the New Ipswich playground. Bob made a positive impact on anyone he came in contact with and his family and community have lost an important figure.

Bob died at his home on May 7, 2015 – He was 53 years old.

In Memory of Bob Gammel
