Oradell officials and community members are taking the first swing at renovations to two little league baseball fields — both set to reopen in less than two weeks.
HOFFMAN FIELD AT ROSSI MEMORIAL PARK
Hoffman Field will reopen in just over a week after being closed for renovations since late August.
Spearheaded by Councilman Michael Staff, a $40,000 open space grant and approximately $100,000 taxpayer dollars funded the improvements to Hoffman Field which include:
- a new drainage system in the infield
-a Cooperstown-approved pitcher's mound
-a knee wall along the back of the field and new bleachers
-a fixed-lip in the infield
-a new handicapped parking spot near the base of the field
-a concrete a path leading from the parking lot to the field.
-seeding of the outfield in Spring 2016
Staff hopes to host tournaments at the U9, U10 and U11 little league baseball field.
