We have started our field improvement program earlier this month with our first project, which is installing a new backstop system and dug out improvements. The old backstop was torn down and the new backstop will consist of a brick half-wall and 25 ft. high netting system. The backstop was also moved closer to home plate which will provide a new picnic area in between the concession stand and the new brick half-wall. Both dug-outs are getting a 10′ x 10′ extension which will provide storage for field maintenance. In addition, the dug-out roofs are being raised. This project should be completed before Labor Day.
During the Fall 2016, we will begin construction of a bathroom/storage facility on the first base side of the field. There will be two uni-sex family-style bathrooms for use by everyone. Attached to the bathrooms will be a large storage facility. This project will also provide running water to the concession stand. The bathroom project will be completed before the 2017 Spring Season starts.
