This Afternoon Mike Tyler and his crew pulled
the winter blanket off the field this
afternoon and take a look at the brand
new playing surface underneath.

Many of you may remember back in
November and December of last year the
turf was killed and stripped and the
field was completely resurfaced and
resodded.

As you can see, the new sod is in
amazing shape. Opening day is April
6th.
