Field issues muddy tourney’s future in Vienna
VIENNA, W.Va. — At the West Virginia State Softball Tournament, the outfield on Field 2 at Jackson Memorial Park could very well symbolize the current status of the tournament’s future in Vienna.
Muddy, at best.
For the second year in a row, the tournament schedule was altered before games got underway because of field conditions.
Jackson Memorial Park normally has three fields available for play, but after careful considerations Tuesday night, Field 2 was deemed unplayable by the West Virginia Secondary Schools Activities Commission, forcing officials to scramble to fit three classifications into two fields for the two-day event.
