A Week in Elizabethtown

I apologize for the lack of posts the past week. I spent the last week in Elizabethtown, KY. This 100+ acre facility is taking shape. Here are a few photos from the baseball/softball fields. There are 12 baseball/softball fields on the site.

First a shot of the infields and a shot of the electric conduit to run pitching machines:

Next, a photo of the drainage that has been installed around the perimeter of the infields.

A couple of photos of the dugouts and the backstops. The dugouts will be finished with chain link around the top and netting between the dugouts.

A final shop of the backstop. On this photo, you can see the beginning on the concrete seating bowl. The field will have 3 rows of seating between the dugouts.

Finally, the grounds shop. A 100+ acre property needs a large grounds shop!

The bulk storage area. This includes covered and uncovered storage.

Look for more from “ETown” in the coming months.

To learn more about the park, go to James Bergdoll’s blog. He is the Sports Turf Manager. The link to his blog is HERE.
