April 2005

Portland was a unique early experience for RedBall. A truly fantastic city for public projects, Portland was welcomed by the Mayor and made possible by a single individual, who became a friend. Thanks to Kevin Carroll -a man at play- for bringing RedBall Project to Portland with rare vision and generosity.

Many people went into making the project a success in Portland, a few include Nikki Gersten, Phyllis Oster, Cynthis Warren, Liz Hummer, Laura Wegner, Karamy Muessig, Brooks Gilley, Kristin Calhoun manager of in situ PORTLAND , the volunteers from PSU, and Scott Mazariegos principal assistant -true dodgeball legend- and tireless source of the positive vibe.
