The Little League Network At The World Series

A daily journal of happenings in and around the 2005 Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.

Thursday, August 25, 2005

We all put in a lot of effort to maintain our local Little League fields during the year but the people who work on the fields in Williamsport really shine!

After every game played on either Volunteer or Lamade stadiums the grounds crews take the field and do their magic. Using regular push brooms, they brush off all of the line chalk, rake out the base paths, repair the mound, and then re-line the fields for the next game. As you can see from this picture, it's 10:00 PM and an 8:00 game was just completed but they have to have the field ready for the first game of the next day.

The crews really do take pride in their work!

    wow! check out those fields! i live in israel, and here our little league fields are a piece of land covered in dirt, rocks, thorns, rusty nails (which once cut a little boy's foot through his shoe and he had to get shots and everything...), garbage and more. if our fields were anywhere near as nice as those... wow...
