I sure hope this happens. I have always wondered why Aberdeen doesn't have a real nice baseball field. I know, I know....what about Ripken stadium and those fields; well I don't know Alot about parks and rec but I'm pretty sure no teams like that play there. I hope the parks and rec teams have access to this new field.
