Hall of Fame baseball star Roberto Alomar is stepping up to the plate to help secure the future of RE/MAX field in Edmonton.

The former Toronto Blue Jay sent an email on March 7 to Mayor Don Iveson and city council voicing his support to keep the park open as part of ongoing plans to redevelop the Rossdale neighbourhood.

“I have made a commitment … to do whatever I can do to see that this ballpark remains an integral and important piece of the Edmonton landscape,” Alomar said in his letter.

“I can’t emphasize enough the importance of this ballpark for baseball in Alberta.”

Alomar was in the city Feb. 24 for the 2nd annual Edmonton Prospects Gala.

During a Q & A at the event, Alomar pledged to write the letter to Iveson.
