Donate to 'Rick Harrison Press Box'

Seventeen (17) years after the new varsity baseball field was dedicated in memoriam of Peter Aumais, we are planning several additional improvements. The main component will be a press box that will be named the “Rick Harrison Press Box. New dugouts and a backstop will be built, and we will update the memorial area for Peter Aumais. The design has been completed by Dyer Brown Architects of Boston, who is preparing construction drawings.

Rick’s coverage of youth and high school sports for the Andover Townsman and Lowell Sun for over 40 years was legendary. Rick’s youth coaching (basketball – 25 years, and baseball – 28 years), combined with his steady leadership, had a tremendous positive impact on thousands of young people in Andover. His dedication and service to Andover (and Lowell) deserves recognition.

As we have started this project, the response has been very encouraging. We have raised $77,000 thus far, and expect to need $23,000 to reach our cash goal. ALL DONATIONS ARE 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Subject to the final scope of work, we hope to start construction in late fall of this year, and ask you to support this well‐deserved and long overdue recognition honoring Rick, and adding new improvements to our varsity and legion field, Peter Aumais Park.
