Guam - The Guam Little League Association continues their efforts to ready the playing field in Harmon in time for the 2011 Asia-Pacific Regional Majors Little League Tournament - now less than a month away. District Administrator of Guam Little League Steve Guerrero says they are working on the field every day and are looking to volunteers to come out and help.

He told KUAM News, "So we are getting there we got about a little less than four weeks before the tournament starts and we are praying that we get it up to standard worse case scenario if it doesn't materialize and we don't get it up to standard we are probably going to use an alternate site."

Such includes the baseball field in Tamuning, which already meets all the requirements of international play. Guerrero says the association has already spent about $5,000 to $6,000 repairing the field in Harmon. He says they will need an additional $15,000 to $20,000 to get the area up to par before the first ball is thrown. 

Ten little league teams are set to compete in the tournament from all over the region including Singapore, Taiwan, The Philippines, the CNMI and New Zealand.
