Dom Lawrence Brookside Park Fund

Be Sports About Sports

Updated Thursday September 29, 2016 by St. Barts Old Timers Softball League.


The late Dom Lawrence had been the Commissioner of the St. Barts Old Timers Softball League for 27 years and in that time he worked tirelessly to help the league grow from 4 teams to 10 teams. A very important message that Mr. Lawrence preached was sportsmanship and fair play. His time as Commissioner was really the “icing on the cake” in his life of serving the Scotch Plains community. His volunteering began in the late 1960’s and some of his accomplishments included:

  • In 1975 Mr. Lawrence received a plaque in recognition of his service as a member of the Scotch Plains Recreation Commission
  • Mr. Lawrence was one of the founders of the Scotch Plains Junior Baseball League, the Junior Raider Football Program and the Recreational Soccer Association
  • Mr. Lawrence was a President of the Scotch Plains - Fanwood High School Booster Club. During his presidency, enough money was raised to construct a refreshment stand and Press Box
  • Mr. Lawrence was a Coach in the St. Barts Girls Basketball League
  • Mr. Lawrence was a President of the Scotch plains - Fanwood chapter of UNICO National
  • Mr. Lawrence was inducted into the Union County ASA Hall of Fame on October 9, 2015.

Dom Lawrence has left a legacy of volunteering and community service. In his memory, a fund has been set up through the Township of Scotch Plains. It will help improve the Brookside Park ball field. Anyone wishing to donate should send a check made payable to “The Dom Lawrence Brookside Park Fund” and mail it to the Scotch Plains Municipal Building, 430 Park Ave., Scotch Plains, NJ 07076 Attn: Recreation Department.
