    Currently...

    The infield surface has been placed. The outfield fence is going up.

    Does anyone want to predict which will be completed first - Paintsville's Field of Dreams OR Johnson County's new Carl Ripken and Babe Ruth fields?? Ha! Seriously, it may not be so funny!

    Hey sidelines. How about some more picture updates on the PHS-FOD-SC. I have seen you running around with your camera a lot lately. Surely you have taken some more pictures of the FODs!

    Outfield fence now complete.

    From last night's board meeting, the only field work to be done is to improve the surface in left field. Once that is complete (and the grass grows), the field will be ready for practice and perhaps Saturday afternoon games.

    Next up...lighting, dugouts, and bleachers...

    I am happy about the progress sorta kinda. The fact it's taken them this long to do that little frosts me, but then some of us have been working on this for (5) years. I certainly hope that bunch doesn't try to hold out on our girls for the (5) years the KHSAA gave them for the third time. I guess I sound ungrateful, but then by the ungrateful way our girls have been treated for years, I could have sounded a lot worse. Hopefully our Title IX officer is staying right on top of matters and our BOE members are making sure of it!
