PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Blue Wahoos helped to renovate a cluster of fields at Showalter Park in Century, Fla. on Tuesday. The team had help from Pensacola State College baseball and softball, the PSC foundation, Bill Bond Little League and Waste Management.
The group got started at 9 a.m. and worked together to overhaul the infield clay, clean up weeds and mow the fields. The crews also worked to edge the dirt and paint the foul poles. The improvements brought the fields up to game-ready condition so that teams have a safe place to practice and play games.
“This was a great day for our community and our organization,” said Blue Wahoos President Jonathan Griffith. “It’s tremendous to see the enthusiasm that all of our volunteers had while taking time out of their busy schedules and give back to the community.”
Roughly 100 volunteers worked together on the coordinated effort led by Blue Wahoos groundskeeper Dustin Hannah. The crews worked in two shifts, morning and afternoon with lunch provided for everyone by the Blue Wahoos. Work wrapped up at roughly 5:00 p.m. with the fields looking ready for action.
This is the third year, the Blue Wahoos have led a local field renovation project. Showalter Park was selected based on the Century community’s request for assistance to revitalize the busy complex.
