New backstop will be dedicated for Scott Whittier

CARLTON – The Carlton Clippers, a Little League team, will dedicate a new backstop at 6 p.m. Thursday in honor of their late coach Scott Whittier.

The backstop will include a plaque in memory of Whittier, who died May 13, 2012, at age 44. Whittier was a long-time Clippers coach and also was active in other youth sports programs in the community.

Whittier’s friends and family raised most of the money for the backstop with bowling tournaments and donations in his honor.

The public is welcome to attend the dedication on the Little League field behind the Carlton Recreation Hall on Route 98.
