A lot has changed in the last two months inside Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium. Thanks to a lot of hard work and some excellent weather the stadium construction is coming along quite nicely. In addition to redoing the turf on the infield, and extending the artificial surface to the outfield, the bullpen areas are the most notable upgrade. While they remain in their original locations they are now fenced in and equipped with three rubbers. However, with the new setup, there is a lot less foul territory down the lines.

Happy Holidays from our family to yours!
