New artificial turf being installed in Serra Park batting cages

Work is nearing completion on the installation of artificial turf in the Serra batting cages at Serra Park. The Serrra Little League Board of Directors approved this capital improvement in order to provide an update to the batting facility, which was in dire need of update.

The new turf eliminates the dusty gravel base, which could not be used after rain. ALong with the turf, new batting box pads and backstop targets have been installed.

Several volunteers, led by the head of Serra Facilities Craig Maloney, have spent the better part of week grading the surface, and then installing it.

Work is not complete, so the cages will remain closed until work is finished. The installation of the turf required gluing the seems, which will take time to cure.

Once the turf project is completed, cage access is available to teams through a reservation system maintained by Serra team managers.

The following rules will be enforced in the cages:

- No food allowed in the cages (including gum and candy)
- No sunflower seeds allowed in the cages
- While not allowed by Little League Baseball anyway, players should not wear metal spikes in the cages
- All teams utilizing the batting cages are required to make sure that all equipment is put away after use.
- Pitching machines need to be stowed in the metal lock boxes after use
- Coaches must ensure that players do not dig their cleats in the turf surface.
- Keep the batting cages clean!

Rule violations may result in the loss of access to the batting cages.

Work is not expected to be complete until March 1st. Coaches must refrain from using the facility until all turf installation work is complete.
