Questions have been raised concerning the fundraiser for and the improvements taking place in Lorain Youth Baseball’s Campana Park. I stopped by today to get some pics and hopefully answer some questions.
This is the main entrance into the Park and the walkway along which the laser engraved bricks would be placed. That is the concession stand at the other end of the walkway. If enough bricks are sold, another walkway will be created on the other side of the stand, leading to the minor league fields at the north end of the Park, and more bricks will line this walkway.
According to Melanie Szabo, 1st Ward Council and co-secretary of LYB league, there have been 34 trees planted already. These are located along the minor league fields in the back of the Park.
More new trees planted in the back by the T-ball field.
And more trees along the sides of the F-League fields in the northwestern park of the Park.
Even more work done as piles of mulch have been raked up from the infield on all the baseball diamonds.
Bleachers have been moved to allow for the trees, and hopefully, will remain here to improve the view of the fields. A considerable amount of work has already been done since the end of the season back in July, and even more to do before games start again next spring.
Man, I can’t wait, and it’s only October!!
