MLB Puts Finishing Touches on Fort Bragg Baseball Field

Posted June 28, 2016 at 4:21am

The Associated Press reports that “a weed-infested golf course at Fort Bragg has bloomed into a major league-quality baseball field on the vast U.S. Army post.”  

“The finishing touches are being put on the ballpark where the Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins will play on July 3. The salute-the-troops game will cap an ambitious four-month project to create the temporary ballpark from scratch.”  

“‘I couldn’t be happier with the progress that the team has made,’ said Murray Cook, MLB’s veteran field consultant and the point man for the construction of this field.”
