This picture was shot from the visitor's dugout. Coach is standing just right outside the fence protecting the players... sweet!
You can tell this facility was built by baseball people. Look at how much space there is to throw your baseball equipment and make it readily available during the game!
This picture at first base shows the red shale infield from a Viola location. Quick drying stuff, rains in the morning, dry in the evening. Notice the green mesh covering for the outfield. No detail was unnoticed.
This picture is the only one that shows the dugout in its entirety. Just a magnificent architectural marvel in my opinion. Folks, remember, this is just a JV baseball field facility. This is a crowning achievement for the Wellington community...
View from the pitching mound. Look at the storage shed in the background and the batting cage behind that. When I find the time I'll take more detailed pictures of that area, and hopefully I can get a view of the whole facility.
This is Ninth Street Ball Park looking south. Notice in the background is Crusader Stadium, home of the Wellington High School football program, the second winningest program in the state of Kansas.
Dugouts equipped with a trash can. A TRASH CAN! The beauty is in the detail, folks.
This is looking through a chain link fence from the south. Notice the Wellington water tower in the background - another great Wellington monument. We have the best JV field in the state, the best best high school facility and the best looking water tower. Why live anywhere else?
The backside of the dugout, equipped with holes to give more light in the dugout. The thing is folks, most of this was paid for with volunteer labor and generous donations.
This is an entryway from the outfield to retrieve home run balls from Wellington batters!
Another outside north view...
Storage shed and mound warm-ups.
Scoreboard with local advertising.
Foul or fair? Easy call at Ninth Street Ball Park.
Losing balls during practice is no longer an issue.
Batting cages, two of them!, just west of the storage facility.
View from the street. I took this picture from the southwest, looking northeast.
Rocked parking lot, proper drainage. Everyone is taken care of.
Bleachers for the parents and fans. Best view in the house.
Scorebook table and another trash can. I defy anyone anywhere that can show me a nicer JV baseball field!!
