Field of nightmares
The District 1-5A baseball tournament which began Thursday was played at Fair Grounds Field. Instead of playing on a lush green field, the playing surface was mostly brown with spots of green. The stadium itself looks older than its 20 years of age.
Apparently, the city of Shreveport hasn't learned the lesson of Independence Stadium, where neglect eventually led to a $30 million renovation.
Even if the actual stadium isn't pristine, there is no excuse for the field looking the way it does.
