"GRASS INFIELD AND OTHER PROJECTS"

 ***Mt Top Area Little League started using the new grass infield on the Orloski Field this past spring,
it was a big hit with the coaches, players and parents.

***The League also spent a great deal of money to fix all of the drainage problems on the Sralick Field (Girls Softball Field). The field drainage has been much improved this season.
***The League also completed the 3rd and final batting cage this season, it has been very beneficial
to all of the teams and players in the league..
*** Safety piping was installed on the top of the fencing on all five (5) fields, its a big safety
improvement to the complex.
*** The league is in the process of adding a new "warning track" to the Orloski Field and it
will be in place for the start of the 2017 season.

*** As money becomes available, we will continue to improve the Alberdeen Complex and all of its fields.
