There was a time, not long ago, when you thought of Ewing Little League, you thought of Fasolino Field.  Ask anyone who grew up playing baseball in the Township and their first thoughts go back to the summer days at Fasolino Field.  They'll talk of the times when homeruns would bounce off the apartment buildings beyond the right field fence, and chasing after foul balls to get a free soda from the concession stand.  Fasolino Field, built in the early sixties, is your quintessential community ballpark, tucked away at the end of a street, nestled within the neighborhood.  The field was part of the community and, every spring, the children of Ewing Little League called it home.  Fasolino Field was the heart of Ewing Little League.

In the mid-2000's, an accident damaged the Visitor's dugout and the field was deemed unsafe to play on.  Slowly time took it's toll on the field.  The infield was taken over by weeds, the lights no longer worked, the scoreboard started to rust away, and graffiti covered the walls of the concession stand.  The field was in trouble and the Township was about to lose a piece of its history.  If it weren't for a group of concerned citizens, the field may have been lost forever.  They were able to restore the concession stand and press-box and rebuild the damaged dug-out.  But there's still work to be done to reopen the field.  It is the goal of the Ewing Little League to make Fasolino Field great again and the children of the league can once again call it home.
