Throughout the summer the field at the Bud Metheny Baseball Complex has gone under a new facelift. Crews have been working to replace the whole infield area from the backstop to where it ends at the outfield line.

Seven feet of dirt was replaced by the new infield and a new homeplate and pitchers mound will be installed to complete the change. A new irrigation system is also being put into place around the diamond to help take care of the grass and better maintain the field.

The improvements are expected to be complete by the end of August in order to be ready for fall workouts and practice.
