I think the field you are suggesting is too small. You need 210' down the


line from home plate. Dugout and batting circle requires the addition of an additional 30' to 40'. If this is a standard soccer field its in the range of 210' to 240' along Emmett Street. Your bleacher idea would work but I think coaches would prefer fans closer to the diamond.

My proposal for what little its worth would be to place the stadium on Nameless Field behind Memorial Gym. There is plenty of space for the facility, existing parking garage close by, Tennis team is moving to new facility at Boar's Head freeing up space and The Lady Astor Tennis Pavilion there. The community has supported The Memorial Gym area as an area for athletic use for a very long time. I think the facility would be supported.
