Seidl Family Baseball Field
The Seidl Family Baseball Field, given by Randy and Janet Seidl, parents of Tommy ’17 and Billy ’19, was dedicated on May 16. The Seidl Family was joined by the varsity baseball team as well as members of the administration and Board President Jim Elcock P’77,’08. After the plaque was unveiled, Fr. Arens blessed and officially dedicated the naming of the field. Remarks were given by Athletic Director David Hinman as well as Trustee Randy Seidl, who thanked the many members of the St. Sebastian’s community who have impacted his sons’ lives in so many positive ways, especially the coaches, who have known, loved, and guided them both in the classroom and on the playing fields. “We are so proud of Tommy and Billy and so proud to give this meaningful gift to the capital campaign, hoping that others can also have their dreams come true as they have for Tommy and Billy,” shared Randy.
As Tommy and Billy both played baseball for the Arrows, dedicating the baseball field felt like the perfect way for the Seidls to honor their sons’ experience at St. Sebastian’s while supporting the campaign. “Tommy and Billy learned so many lessons and achieved so much success, not only physically, but also more importantly, spiritually, and emotionally, through the coaching, their teammates and the overall team experience,” noted Janet. Her parents, Tom and Terri Grojean, who also contributed to the gift, have been loyal Arrows fans along with Janet and Randy. They have attended countless games while always counseling their grandsons to be student-athletes, “students first, athletes second.” The Seidls look forward to staying connected to the school and standing on the sidelines to cheer on future Arrows.
