Only 13 months after Ruiz first had his vision of a safe playing safe for Rockwood's youth, that vision become a reality. Now, thanks to Ruiz and Fields For All, the Portland Timbers collaboration with the Timbers Army's Operation Pitch Invasion (OPI) and generous community sponsors, residents of the Ruiz's Rockwood neighborhood celebrated on Tuesday at a special opening the opportunity to play on two brand-new futsal courts, called SNAKE Court at Vance Park, on a first-come, first-served basis.

SNAKE is an acronym for “Sports, Neighborhood, Action, Knowledge and Empowerment.”
