The crack of the bat, and the shout of "play ball" were the sounds heard at a new multi-million dollar softball field in Longview. Saturday the ribbon was cut to open the much anticipated Lear park softball complex off Loop 281.
The project is phase one of the Lear park project which began in the spring of 2002. Hundreds turned out for music and recognitions and for the dedication ceremony. Two other phases remain to be completed in the sports and recreation complex.
