New Field Proposed For Park

By Staff | Feb 16, 2011

At the Pine Grove Town Council meeting held Feb. 14 Valley High School Head Baseball Coach Jimmy West addressed the council regarding his proposal for the addition of a baseball field to Earley Park located at the Byrd Center.

West outlined that many adjustments would need to be made such as moving the tennis and basketball courts and some of the park play areas, but everything could coexist and create an even better park.

West added he hopes the project could be started in May and be completed in time for next season. Also, he stressed the town would not be expected to take care of the baseball field’s upkeep.

The council felt it was a good idea and asked West to return within the next couple of weeks with a detailed plan and layout for his plan. Council noted a special meeting may be scheduled later this month regarding this proposal.
