Ballfield work under way as weather breaks
Welding students from the Indiana County Technology Center helped set steel columns that will support the entrance to the Miracle League ballfield at the YMCA of Indiana County in White Township.
The field, designed for children and adults with special needs, is set to open in the spring of 2015.
According to John Steigert, the YMCA’s facilities director, work is progressing. The foundations and dugouts have been installed, he said, and the columns that the students are setting will support a decorative archway. Also, crews have been hauling truckloads of fill to the site to level it.
Participating students were Kevin Carp, Ryan Senick, Lindsey Morrow, Dakota McCunn, Brandon Cunkelman, Chase Kromer, Devon Ewing and Jacob Brunecke, with welding instructor Jim Allshouse and assistant instructor Zach Strong. (Tom Peel/Gazette photo)
