The Novato High School (NHS) Hornets baseball team has a new dugout interior to go
along with their new 102,000 sq. ft. synthetic turf playing field thanks to team managerial,
booster, and Rotary Club of Ignacio leaders coordinating the $5,130 community services
The interior dugout enhancements consisted of new benches with backs, and cubbyholes for
baseball equipment. Rotary Club members helped fund the project and complete the final
equipment assembly as well as repaint the backstop.
“We purchased the dugout equipment by way of Sean Harmon who owns Stings Baseball LLC.”
Larry Curtis, Rotary Club of Ignacio Community Services Chair, said. “Sean is a coach and was
the school coordinator with his dad, Paul Harmon, assisting as a member of the NHS sports
boosters club.”
Sean approached Rotary Club member Carrie Lee about the possibility of the Rotary Club of
Ignacio helping to fund the purchase of new equipment for the dugout and help install it. The
Rotary board approved the total amount from its Club community service funds. They did final
assembly and painting January 24 th .
The more than $9 million in NHS Atheltic Field improvements approved under Measure G
provided for a generic home baseball bench and little baseball equipment dugout storage,
according to Sean.
“The Rotary Club of Ignacio came through with the funds that allowed us to upgrade the dugout
interior to the competitive standards we expect for our players.” Sean said. “ We couldn’t have
done this without their community service dollars and volunteer labor.”
