In years past, The Charger’s baseball field has not been very well kept or well taken care of. Charger baseball field was known for its bad hops and its patchy grass that was not well maintained. Coach Todd Cook is making it his job to fix this. He is committed to making the baseball team a first class program and this starts with the field.

A few Saturdays ago, some fathers, players and coaches met to work on the field. They took down the green, torn wind screens that had been up since the beginning of last season. New blue wind screens have been put up on the fences and make the field look so much better. Coach Turgeon reshaped the base paths and got rid of the lips where the grass meets the dirt. The movable batting cage had its wheels replaced and the steering mechanism redone to make its easier to move. The infield is completely flat now and there are no more of the famous Charger field bad bounces. The infield grass is mowed 3 times a week by our coach and the outfield grass is well maintained. A new manual score board has been put up on the fence of the field that was created by Coach Turgeon. The score board resembles the score board at Fenway Park with hanging numbers for the inning and the score. A navy blue Charger nail drag was created for the field with a gold Charger logo on it. The team has also acquired many new rakes and drags to keep the newly remodeled field looking pristine. At the end of every practice, the team works on the field for about 20 minutes to make sure the field we worked so hard to fix stays looking great. The dug out fences have been cut in half on the side facing the field and a Charger Baseball banner is hanging on the front. The bullpen mounds have been cleaned up and reshaped with cinder blocks. The baseball field looks better than ever and is ready for a great season of Charger Baseball.
