Goodyear Ballpark wins Best of the West Award

Councilmember's work with teens acknowledged

 

 

GOOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Nov. 12, 2009) Goodyear Ballpark took top honors in the Sports category as part of Westmarc?s 2009 Best of the West Awards on Nov. 5, recognizing outstanding contributions to the image, lifestyle and economic development of the West Valley. Goodyear Ballpark was recognized as a catalyst for economic activity, creating jobs and enhancing Goodyear?s image and quality of life for our residents.  

 

Goodyear Ballpark employs nearly 300 full-time, part-time and seasonal personnel.  The economic impact to Goodyear this year was estimated at more than $21 million.  That number is expected to nearly double with the addition of the Cincinnati Reds to the facility next year.

 

Goodyear Councilmember Joanne Osborne was also acknowledged during the Best of the West Awards for her work with the Southwest Valley Family YMCA?s Teen Action Council, a teen leadership group that helps teens develop personally and professionally. The Teen Action Council won the Best of the West Award in the Leadership category.
