The Lynnfield Girls Softball League's dual mission is to provide a fun, instructional and safe outlet for girls to learn and enjoy the awesome sport of softball, and to provide a healthy feeder program that will help create and maintain a consistently strong high school softball program.
The LMS softball field improvements are shaping up nicely, as was visible during the recent warm stretch. The skin infield is impressive and the sodded outfield seems to be taking hold. It remains unclear when the field will be ready for play, but we're hoping that the relatively mild winter will accelerate the process.
Following is a November report from Arthur Bourque, who spearheaded the successful effort to upgrade the town's playing fields: "At the softball field, the new clay infield has been installed and it is looking great. We have re-graded and reinstalled the outfield, installed sprinklers and drainage and will be sodding that field on Wednesday. The concrete walk behind the backstop will be installed on Monday or Tuesday and the electrical installation will be happening next week. In the spring we hope to replace the storage trailer at that location and add a pad for a port-a-pottie. That will wrap up that field."
The sod was placed, as seen in the attached photo, and with the exceptional work of the DPW and contractor, the field is on track to join our high school field as among the best in the region.
The photos featured include one from early October (showing construction vehicle and material on mound), one from late October (dirt spread on field) and four different views from February 20, 2018.
Lynnfield residents have invested substantial amounts of money and time to upgrade the town's fields to be among the best in the area. In particular, the high school complex is an impressive facility that creates a better playing experience for Lynnfield residents and for the out-of-town teams they play.
To help preserve the quality of our fields, please follow the Town Recreation Committee's Field Guidelines.
