Berkeley High alumni Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer (aka, comedy group The Lonely Island) returned to Berkeley High School a week ago Sunday to shoot footage for a project that aims to chronicle their lives in Berkeley.
A double header and a football scrimmage were cancelled by unseasonable rain on Saturday September 21, but that didn’t stop more than 250 people gathering at the new expanse of green at MLK Jr. Way and Derby in Berkeley to witness the dedication of the new Tim Moellering Field.
TIM MOELLERING FIELD The Tim Moellering Field, on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Derby Street, will open to the public Saturday, Sept. 21, at 11 a.m. Celebrate the return of baseball and additional practice fields to Berkeley: there will be a few short speeches, refreshments and a softball game. The field can accommodate all field sports (there’s also a basketball court) and features Berkeley High’s first regulation baseball field, where attendees can enjoy pick-up baseball games and hotdogs.) Construction on the field, named after a Berkeley High teacher and coach who died in 2011, began more than a year ago. The field is designed for use by the athletics programs at Berkeley High and Berkeley Tech and there will be times when the general public may be able to use it.
