For the first eight seasons Eric Lawrencecoached baseball at North Cross, he had to drive his players to Penn Forest Elementary School in order to practice each afternoon. This also meant that they had to travel in order to play their opponents. Fortunately, two things happened. First, the Capital Campaign deemed that a baseball field be developed on campus. Second, Bittle Porterfield III, loved baseball and wanted to help make the dream of a home field advantage a reality. Bittle served on the North Cross Board of Trustees for 24 years, including serving as Chairman of the Board.
