Fielding a Flood Recovery

Posted: Updated:

More than three years removed from the Mouse River flood, a big part of Burlington is finally ready for the sound of kids once again.

In a rebuilding project that ended with a price tag around a million dollars, kids now have a new playground to use, and the ball diamonds are finally back as well.

The baseball field has seen improvements over what it was before the flood.

New dugouts, a full grass infield, and a concession stand all bring this spot used by hundreds of kids in the spring and summer back and truly better than ever.

(Paula Bachmeier - Burlington Baseball Booster) "The whole thing is here for the kids. It has nothing to do with us. It isn't to our glory. And this isn't just for the baseball. This year we are still playing TBall in the Old Settler's Park. We have 700 kids who play out here. It isn't just for the baseball but for all the kids who play down here and for the people in Minot who come out in the evenings and play in our program." 

Bachmeier credits JeNenne Kabanak with doing much of the grant-writing work to get the project completed.

    Crews working to keep the fire contained and those keeping people a safe distance away certainly didn't go hungry today.
