Guam - An upcoming Little League tournament has the Department of Parks & Recreation pulling out all the stops trying to ready the cluster fields at the Harmon Sports Complex. According to a letter sent today to Governor Eddie Calvo's senior policy advisor Arthur Clark by Senator Tina Muna Barnes, contractor-related concerns have rendered the field unusable.

The senator said, "It was real important and a concern of Parks & Rec to make sure the contractors warranty will not be voided if the access was give to Little League, so that's where we are at right now. We all want to see this work we are very anxious to make sure of course this Little League tournament with Guam with 12 to 15 teams coming to date, we want to make sure this is a success."

Senator Barnes asked Clark to assist in resolving concerns by the Parks & Rec that work on the field may nullify a warranty with the field's contractor. Acting Agency Director Pete Calvo says they are working on issues with the fields, grass, lighting and restrooms. According to Barnes, teams will come from all over the Asian-Pacific Region, each bringing 18+ plus coaches and chaperones.
