The baseball/softball fields located on the Alpenrose grounds are in first-rate condition and have been in use since Henry Cadonau, the Founder of Alpenrose Dairy, built them for his grandchildren over 58 years ago. In 2012, at the Alpenrose Stadium, Mike Hebrard and the crew at Athletic Field Design won the STMA Softball Field of the year for 2012 Little League World Series.

Promoting healthy choices is part of the Alpenrose brand and we are happy to support these young athletes.”
