The wooden frames supporting the roofs were rotting, creating unsafe conditions for the youth using the field. The North Liberty Youth Baseball and Softball League (NLYBS) has wanted to help the city correct the problem for several years, but lacked the manpower to tackle the project. This summer, things came together to make the repairs possible.
