The Danbury Westerners baseball team has donated $2,900 for an infield tarp. It will cover the infield at Rogers Park. Parks and Rec Director Nick Kaplanis says this will help keep the field playable after periods of heavy rain or bad weather.
The tarp will be stored at the complex. There is also a roller that will be used to place and remove the tarp from the field.
Kaplanis says the Parks Department may be responsible from time to time for putting it on or taking it off depending on when the games are being played or who is playing them. Kaplanis says there's going to have to be some anticipation and watching weather reports. But there will be times when it doesn't have to be on the field for several days.
