New baseball fields in Barre

Posted: Updated:
BARRE, Vt. -

Barre little leaguers are breaking in a brand new ball field.

After two years of effort, the baseball field on Prospect Street is complete as work continues on a practice field, and football field.

Bond Auto Parts teamed up with other area-companies to secure about $100,000 worth of funds and supplies for the job.

Company spokespeople say it feels great to see all their hard work pay off.

"We're happy to be part of the community here and it's one of those things where seeing the kids run the base paths and making plays and the fans cheering, it's the sort of thing that makes it all worthwhile," says Mark Mast of Bond Auto Parts.

Earl Bond, the company's founder, donated field decades ago.  An official ribbon cutting ceremony is set for a couple weeks from now.  Representatives from the Boston Red Sox are expected to make an appearance.
