Renovation began Wednesday, July 24 on Fireman’s Field at Wallace Memorial Park in Louisiana.
The field is being redone for the high school district tournament to be hosted by Louisiana High School in October. It is also hoped by a local renovation committee that the field will attract other softball tournaments in the future.
The work was triggered by a pledge from the Louisiana R-II School Board on Tuesday, July 23 to spend up to $15,000 on the project. The city of Louisiana, which owns the field, has budgeted $20,000 toward the project, which has a preliminary cost estimate of around $30,000.
