Green Wave baseball field to get a makeover

  • Wednesday, May 29, 2013

 
This summer measures will be taken to level the playing field for the Green Wave baseball team, literally.
“For a while now the infield out here has been higher than the outfield but it is my understanding that we are getting the field totally redone,” Summerville coach Burt Bazzle said. “They are talking about getting behind home plate with a bulldozer and pushing everything toward the outfield and just leveling everything out. They will also plant new grass and install new drainage so it should be like having a new field.”
The renovations are expected to begin either this week or the following week.
The only foreseeable negative of having the work done is, once it begins, Summerville’s American Legion Baseball program will be left without a home field for the rest of this season.
Summerville isn’t sponsoring a senior division Legion team this summer because of a lack of interest from players in that age group. However, Summerville is sponsoring two teams in the junior division. Both opened their season last week.
Once the renovations begin at the field, the two Legion teams will play all of their remaining games at their opponents’ fields.
Bazzle says the inconvenience will be worth it once all the work is completed.
“Our kids are excited because now they will be able to play on something they are proud of, something more like the schools around us have,” he said.
