Belmont Scout's Eagle Project Benefits Belmont Little League

Austin, a former Belmont Little Leaguer, saw a need for equipment storage units for baseball teams at the Belmont Sports Complex.

Austin Schwarz recently completed three storage boxes that were placed near the backstops on the North Field at the Belmont Sports Complex. The storage units will be used by the Belmont Redwood Shores Little League which primarily uses these backstops for the T-Ball age group.

Austin was a former Little League player himself and thought the League could benefit from having the units rather than bringing all the equipment to the site each time the equipment is needed. Austin is a founding member of Troop 61 and served as the Senior Patrol Leader for more than two years. He is on track to complete all the requirements for his Eagle Rank by the end of the year. 

Belmont Redwood Shores Little League and the City of Belmont have expressed their sincere gratitude for Austin’s contribution and efforts. He worked with Daniel Ourtiague at the City of Belmont to get approval on the project. Current BRSLL President is Ken Knobel. 

Troop 61 member Jack Hopkins also completed his Eagle Project this fall in Redwood City at the Marine Science Institute. He served as Senior Patrol leader for one year. He is also on track to complete his Eagle Rank by the end of the year. At that time, the Troop will celebrate having their first two Eagle Scouts.
 
Austin and Jack have been in scouts together since they were in the first grade at Sandpiper Elementary.
