Bandits Work Day

Jan. 27, 2019

Thank you very much for all those who participated in our recent annual 'Bandits work day'. We always have a plan to accomplish many things that need addressing, and this year we were able to complete a great deal in a small amount of time. The day was cold and dreary, so having over thirty volunteers on the day was a huge accomplishment in itself.

Thanks to all three Bandits teams, as every team was well represented. We have introduced some more dirt and a lot of sand onto field #2, and hopefully it will get to the stage field #1 is at after a few years of keeping it looked after. Most of the work focused on field #2, as we added a bullpen mound, re-dimensioned the bases and OF fence lines, moved and installed the OF fence, built a mound, re-surfaced the infield and cut a new edge into the infield. In addition to the fieldwork done, we also were able to put field turf down inside the batting cage, as well as the football concession area. The batting cage was re-strung and hung with the portable pitching mound set up for easy pitching or hitting practice. We will soon have a concrete ramp onto the concession area as well.

It was a very successful day, and my sincere thanks go out to our volunteers who did such a splendid job. Big Thanks to Craig Queen and First Foursquare Church for their help with the field turf. Also, another thanks goes out to John Bradley for being our liason with Duke Energy and having them attempt to address the well situation down at our fields. We appreciate their attention, and we hope we can get some water flowing down there soon. Lastly, thanks to Eric Wells and Wes Lathe for getting some heavy equipment down to the field so that we could more easily move dirt and turf - it was a huge help. We can't wait for baseball season. See ya'll at the field.
