AN OFFICIAL DEDICATION OF THE RICK DIBEAN Ballfield at Bennett Field was made by Owosso Mayor Chris Eveleth during the Monday evening, May 6 meeting. The mayor thanked Dibean for his contributions to the community through the Owosso Girls Softball League and for “single-handedly running the operation for the last twenty-nine years.”
Dibean has demonstrated his devotion by mowing the fields, dragging and chalking the fields, overseeing field usage, and organizing $90,000 in fundraising efforts used for improvements at Bennett Field – involving the construction of the scoring booth and storage building.
The rear ball diamond has now been renamed in his honor.
