Earlier this summer, the Jesse Burkett Little League dedicated Coghlin Field, an athletic field located in Worcester, MA. Spectators were treated to a parade, followed by Mayor Joseph Petty extending a proclamation from the City of Worcester to the Coghlin Family, officially naming May 31 as Ted Coghlin, Sr. Day in Worcester.
For more than 100 years, Coghlin Companies has been actively involved in supporting local, regional and national health, education and social service organizations. “This dedication is a great example of Coghlin Companies’ commitment to the community,” said Coghlin Companies’ President and CEO Chris Coghlin. “It’s a major component of our core philosophy to give back whenever possible, especially when the city and its residents have done so much to support our growth over the years.” He added, “We take great pride in continuing our Four Generation commitment of supporting multiple Worcester and Central Massachusetts-based youth sport and education programs.”
Sue Mailman, Chris’s cousin and owner of Coghlin Electrical Contractors and Network Services, was eager to note that “our Great-Grandfather was one of the good guys – it was terrific to see him honored! We are proud to continue the tradition.”
So, the next time you’re in the mood to catch a Little League baseball game, head on over to Coghlin Field at 540 Chandler Street in Worcester, find yourself a comfortable spot, and watch some future stars play on a great field!
