Little League Boosters Make Upgrades at Ballpark

The summer ball season came to an end early in July but the local little league group didnt close up shop for the season.

Board members, league players and other volunteers joined forces for a work day at the elementary school ball diamond in Memphis to make a series of upgrades to ballpark.

Neill McKee provided a tractor and implement to aerate the outfield grass to improve growth. The implements were also used to work the infield dirt and improve drainage on the field.

Board members poured concrete floors for both dugouts at the park.

A new permanent chain-link fence was installed in the outfield, replacing the temporary plastic snow fence that had been in place since the field was constructed a few years ago.

This summers upgrades demonstrate the leagues continued dedication to the school park system, which is shared with the league, hosting Scotland County R-I softball games at the junior high level during the fall and little league t-ball and softball contests during the summer.

The park features an air-conditioned concession stand as well as a stand-alone utility shed for field equipment and a quality lighting system for night games. Special field conditioner was mixed with the infield dirt to better allow the park to handle precipitation and remain playable. Costs for these projects were shared by the school district, the SCR-I Booster Club, the Little League association and local donors.

Future park upgrades being considered include permanent bathrooms, bleacher upgrades and off-street parking.
