SALISBURY, Md.- The Salvation Army's baseball field in Salisbury was given a complete makeover in one day on Wednesday.

Prior to Wednesday, the field was overgrown with weeds encroaching into the infield.

Montgomery County Parks headed the project to completely renovate the field with the help of The Maryland Recreation and Parks Association. Volunteers from the Salvation army and around 14 volunteers from MRPA assisted with the renovation.

The entire field received new materials with the infield getting new dirt, the outfield gaining new sod, and a whole new irrigation system and fence being put in around the field. These improvements are meant to create a more playable and safe environment for the community groups that use the field. The first group took test this out was a girls' softball team that took the field for a game right after the restoration.

The materials used for the project were donated by many businesses and organizations including Best Fence, BSN Sports, Collins Wharf Sod, Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc., Luck Ecosystems, Mid-Atlantic Turf, Inc., MRPA, Montgomery County Parks, Newsom, Peninsula Irrigation, Queen Anne’s County Parks, The Salvation Army, SiteOne Landscape Supply and Wicomico County Recreation & Parks.
