In the fall of 2006, the Blacksburg Baseball Association, in conjunction with BHS, renovated the playing surface at Blacksburg High School. Constructed in 1974, the field has had more than its share of wear and tear. The existing infield was removed, and a comprehensive drainage system was installed. Over 100 tons of topsoil was added in order to bring the field up to specification. Some spots on the field were different in height by as much as 10 inches! The field was graded and rocks removed. A clay pitcher's mound was installed and new sod was laid. These pictures record some of the activity. The project cost was $35,000. Many thanks to the countless volunteers who helped with this community project. Together, we are making baseball in Blacksburg better.
