Pete Roberson moved to Highland City in 1977 with a dream. With his love for baseball and his community, Pete and a few other gentlemen such as, Mr. Gene Henderson, Mr. James Pervatt and Mr. Tommy Mann saw the dream through. In the late 90's Hershel Thompson took over as the President of the park and continued to push for excellence. The park received a new concession stand. Lakeland Highlands Babe Ruth Baseball was selected as Polk County's "Park Of The Year" in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2019!
Lakeland Highlands Babe Ruth Baseball is committed to keeping this dream alive by providing the best possible experience for our players and their families.
