t2systems-ilindians.gifINDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 10, 2008) T2 Systems Inc.s, philanthropic efforts during the companys annual all-employee meeting were its biggest yet. Dubbed T2s BIG GIVE, yesterdays event resulted in a renovated baseball field at LeGore Boys & Girls Club on the near west side of Indianapolis.

More than 100 T2 employees from the United States and Canada teamed up with the Indianapolis Indians, J&D Turf and Victory Waste Solutions. Jamie Mehringer, one of J&D Turfs founding partners and the former head groundskeeper at Victory Field, oversaw the field renovation.

The day included a complete field overhaul. The crew removed sod; installed bases, the pitchers mound and home plate; topdressed the infield and built two sets of bleachers. To ensure the ongoing maintenance of the field, T2 Systems provided a complete set of field tools and accessories. J&D Turf also gave the LeGore Boys & Girls Club staff a lesson on maintenance.

Joining the festivities were Ryan Bowman, the Indianapolis Indians Community Relations Manager, and Rowdie, the Indians mascot.

Late in the day, T2 Systems President and CEO, Mike Simmons, threw the inaugural pitch before the Boys & Girls Club members took on T2 employees during the first-ever game on the new field. Simmons also announced the name of the newly established field as decided by the children.

Coming together as a company to help our great Indianapolis community is something everyone can feel good about. We were privileged to be able to offer our services and enjoyed the experience with such a deserving organization, said Simmons.

Although several organizations were in need of additional resources, the LeGore Boys & Girls Club, 5228 W. Minnesota Street in Indianapolis, was selected based on its specific needs. On any given day more than 125 children, ages 5-18, visit the west side facility that many of them call their second home. Juan Ongay, the director, was thrilled with T2 Systems decision of building a baseball field for the Club and its children to enjoy.
