Spokane, Wash. - It was a day full of hard work—with a little bit of mascot madness mixed in—as the Spokane Indians restored five fields at Plante’s Ferry on Wednesday, June 7th, through the Community Fields Project presented by Les Schwab Tire Centers. Over a dozen Spokane Indians team members and 60+ volunteers from various business and organizations worked throughout the day on a number of improvements at Plante’s Ferry including:
- Infield edging
- Painting of team benches and kiosk signs
- Edging of concrete surfaces around the backstops
- Installation of outfield fences
- Spreading of Turface infield amendment on all five fields
- Grooming and prepping infields
- Pruning and cleaning up garden beds
- Repairing and tying cyclone fencing
"We love having the opportunity to support baseball and softball at a grassroots level in our community," said Otto Klein, Spokane Indians Senior Vice President. "We’re grateful to all of our volunteers for their help with the project and hope the youth baseball and softball players enjoy these improvements to their fields.”
Through the Community Fields Project, the Spokane Indians, Les Schwab, and supporting partners have pledged to restore a minimum of one baseball/softball field in the region each year. Previous fields include War Veterans Memorial Field in Wellpinit, Washington in 2021 and a pair of softball fields at Fairchild Air Force Base last year. Suggestions for new fields to be included in the program can be submitted to: [email protected].
