softball fields

If you want to take you daughter and friends and play a game of softball in rockbridge county where would you go ? The High school takes the bases off the field. Maury river middle the grass has covered one and the other is so rough they would break a leg. Effinger grew over. Mountian view and highland belle No. Brewbaker is in the city but set up for adults. You would think they could keep up atleast one field for the kids.

Try the two fields between the bubble pool and the Kid's Place...on Wallace.

Wish I could help. Go to brewbaker and take three welcome mats to shorten the base lines. Good Luck.

Just saying, I help with a 12 and under team that played rec ball and now tournaments. There's several teams based in rockbridge county that do the same. The county does'nt have a decent field to play on and seems no one cares. We been to different counties with very nice fields and complexs. This weekend we're in Harrisonburg, there's 12 teams just in 12u at $375.00 per team. Look how this could help the county by hosting tournaments. Trying to keep kids in sports should not be this hard to do.

Dang. Imagine that. I do not see the solution but, I do not see the "problem" either. We don't have a dag gawned IMAX either, or a skating rink or even a roller rink or bowling alley either. Just sayin'

One could always locate the magic tree that money grows on and shake it, or lobby the Federal Gubbamint to give us some Obamama Moolah from his magic STASH. Why do I read your post as get this crazy vibe???

Want a good answer? Work through the systems that are local and in place that support your sport, help them, augment them with your ENTHUSIASM, and take a little dose of looking on the sunny side of life!! We DO happen to have a really good and always improving Public Library system....

OH, and the Countries only not for profit community owned drive in theatre! Two Zoos Too!! And as if THAT isn't enough there's the always hyperbolic COONDOG to talk to...

Cripes. :geek:

crux I guess u don't have kids or dont enjoy watching kids have a good time. Or maybe you work for our county goverment and rather have a pay raise for yourself and not provide a fun place for kids. Our program in place is RARO and they won't let our youth sports play with Buena Vista to have more kids. You would think with having a paid youth program it should be the best but it's just the opposite. Did'nt write to bash anyone just saying when you think you are doing something good for kids there should be some help out there.

I do have some experience with kids and fatherhood and RARO. Good Luck. I hope you can make it all better for everyone.
