Work Needed on Longview Baseball Fields

The start of spring means start of "America's pastime" for little leaguers across America. But in Longview some young baseball players may have to play on inadequate fields. Conditions of ball fields at Mcwhorter park have been in decay for some time. The fields have poor drainage, erosion, and bleachers that need repair. Volunteers want the City Parks and Recreation Department to put time and money in the fields, but city officials say the agreement is to work in partnership with the league.
