Construction begins on Torrington's co-ed softball field

Posted: Updated:

Torrington's co-ed softball league will soon have a new field to play their games on.

One of the city's two Babe Ruth baseball fields at Jirdon receives a face lift, during its conversion into a co-ed softball field.

Grass on the infield has already been torn up, and when the snow clears, they will begin re-sodding and setting the bases.

Park Superintendent for the city of Torrington, Matt John, says significant growth within their city's co-ed softball league increased their need for the field.

"They asked us if there was anything we could do and we just developed this plan to use this field," says John.  "Because there's only one Babe Ruth team and they just need one field."

John says residents can expect the project to be complete within the next three weeks.
