SALISBURY, Md.- The Franklin P. and Aruthur W. Perdue Foundation announced Wednesday that they are generously giving a 150,000 grant to help build a baseball field in Wicomico County.
The Project 7 1/2 will make a huge impact by building the first-of-its kind baseball field that will be for individuals with physical or intellectual disabilities.

The grant will help the county start construction on the field.
They hope that Project 7 ½ will bring tournaments and other recreational activities to shore.
