FAQ on Baseball Field & Meadows Elementary School Construction

Why is there a fence around the large baseball field?
Due to the construction of Meadows Elementary School next door, the contractor has made the decision to close the large baseball field in order to install some underground utilities as well as construct the exterior wall closest to the outfield fence. Because that field is on land that is owned by Fort Bend ISD, it is within their right to do so.

How long will the field be closed?
The contractor says that the field will be closed through our fall baseball season  We are planning for the season as though we will not have access to that field at all.

Where are the Mustang and Bronco divisions going to play their games?
We have received permission from the City of Meadows Place to install a temporary field at the practice field next to the lake and W. Airport to play games and practices on.

Is there enough room for a field at that location?
Yes. While we will have a short right field due to a hill near the lake, there is enough room for a 190 ft center field and up to 220 ft in left field.

What needs to be done to get the field game ready?
We will need to remove the grass around the bases and home plate for sliding pits, cover the area with some baseball dirt, install the bases, install temporary fencing in the outfield, and find a temporary location to place the bleachers. Our current plan is to purchase or build a portable pitching mound for game use.

That sounds like a lot of work. Do you need any help?
Yes! We will have at least one or two field prep work days that will be announced soon. Please be on the lookout for that to be announced and come ready to work. If anyone has access to a small tractor that we could use to move dirt, please let us know. Also, this is an unexpected expense for our league, so if you are interested in making a donation to help cover the costs, contact Pam Huddle at [email protected]

Anything else I need to know?
We are committed as a league to provide a full season for all four divisions ages 4-12. While we did not ask for this and it is not optimal, this is only temporary and we hope to come back in future seasons at our regular fields. Please join us on this adventure!
