Field fix

Construction equipment was ready and some earth had been moved Wednesday for the improvements to Bob Young Field in Ellsworth’s Summit Park. The infield is being stripped down and the existing sod replaced, along with infield material, plus drainage will be upgraded. New drainage will be added around the backstop and a new sprinkling system for the field will be installed. Cost of the project, estimated at between $40,000 and $45,000 is being evenly split among the Village of Ellsworth, Ellsworth School District and Ellsworth Hubbers. (Herald photo by Bill Kirk)
