Field Prep & Maintenance day for 2017 was a great success. While many players and parents choose not to come out to help, we had an enthusiastic group that did.

There is still plenty to do, so we will be asking for more help as they season progresses.

Thanks again for those that showed up and thanks to those that let us know they could not.
