Workers from Danny’s Construction of Shakopee prepare to lift a light tower by crane.
Two field lights at the South Park ball-field were moved last Friday morning to make the right field fence line about 40 feet longer, from 260 feet to about 300 feet. Centerfield was also lengthened about 14 feet. The field realignment was a part of Belle Plaine’s Celebrate 1990 grant of $19,050 to build a new grandstand. The grandstand committee is ready to go and is waiting to have an architect or engineer approve the final plans. The grandstand needs to be constructed by December 31 of this year or the grant money will be lost.
