Minor League Baseball’s Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees Unveil Local Field Rehabilitation Program
Michael Felter Field, home of Moosic Little League, near Scranton, Pa., will be the first benefactor of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees’ new Little League rehabilitation program.
The program, dubbed the SWB Yankees’ “Adopt a Field Program,” will focus on rejuvenating area Little League fields, while also providing an individualized athletic field maintenance guide for each league.
Each year, one Little League field from Lackawanna County (Pa.), and one Little League field from Luzerne County (Pa.), will be chosen to receive assorted field maintenance and repairs.
For the inaugural year of the program, Moosic Little League was selected as a way to recognize the community’s continued support of PNC Field (located in Moosic), home stadium of the SWB Yankees since 2007.
The SWB Yankees front office is currently in the planning stage with Kingston/Forty Fort Little League, which was chosen at random for this year’s Luzerne County league project, to schedule an initial evaluation of the league’s field.
Each league’s maintenance guide will contain information on year-long grass and turf care, along with other information on proper athletic field care.
