Softball teams in Woodford County have a new home, and one that could rival many college softball fields.

On Tuesday County leaders were joined by the Woodford Parks Foundation and Major League Baseball's "Baseball Tomorrow Fund" in the opening ceremonies of the field.

The "Baseball Tomorrow Fund" awarded grant money to the parks foundation to help build facility.

The field features the same kind of turf and infield dirt as many Major League teams. The field is also lit by state of the art lights.

The facility cost 330 thousand dollars to build, however without the donations from the community and Major League Baseball construction would of cost more than half a million dollars.

The new field will be home to 17 different teams and about 260 from middle school all the way to high school.
