Field in disrepair as tournament nears

Guam - An upcoming major regional little league tournament has the Department of Parks & Recreation scrambling to prepare the Gregory Matanane Memorial Field in Dededo in time for the first pitch. Acting agency director Pete Calvo says they are working on issues with the fields, grass, lighting and restrooms. Cost of preparations, he says could run up to $105,000.

He said, "Building the four fields up there was program funded under the National Park Service and while we did recently accept the fields we did have problems and so we are right now trying to address those problems."

Right now the property has no outdoor lighting and Calvo says all games would have to be played during the day. He adds there are also no restrooms on site. Calvo say if the park cannot be whipped into shape in time they may have to look at possible alternative sites.
