Ward Melville High School and the district’s athletic department recently hosted commemorative ribbon cutting ceremonies for the new turf baseball and softball fields.

Last year, Ward Melville’s baseball and softball teams only had the chance to play on the new infield turf for one week before sports were shut down due to COVID-19. This year, the teams enjoyed the completed projects, which included new outfields, fences, foul poles and bleacher areas.

“These ceremonies and fields will mark a new era for our baseball and softball programs which will be comprised of many games, practices, clinics and, I know, some future championship games,” said Kevin Finnerty, executive director of health, physical education, recreation and athletics.
