Groundbreaking Celebration Held at McNaughton Fields
Groundbreaking Celebration Held at McNaughton Fields
02/4/16

About 50 people, many proudly sporting Woodlawn Little League (WLL) ball caps, attended the groundbreaking ceremonies on Saturday, January 30, 2016 for the major renovation of the baseball fields at McNaughton Park in Alexandria, Virginia.

Next to towering mounds of snow, public officials, little league players, parents and coaches raised steaming cups of coffee and hot chocolate to celebrate the impending upgrade of fields that have been used by Woodlawn Little League since the 1960s. Speakers included Mount Vernon District Supervisor Daniel G. Storck, Park Authority Board Member Linwood Gorham (Mount Vernon), President of the Woodlawn Little League Dennis Dunn, and Virginia State Senator Scott A. Surovell.

Work will include the demolition of the four existing fields and facilities, site re-grading and construction of four new lighted and irrigated diamond fields – a 90-foot diamond, one 60/70-foot diamond with a grass infield, one 60/70 diamond with a skinned infield and one 60-foot diamond with a skinned infield. Amenities will include covered dugouts, bullpens, batting cages, bleachers and fencing. A 173-space parking lot will also be added.

Utility connections will also be provided for future restrooms and a concession stand. This will allow for a Park Authority partnership with WLL for construction of these additional facilities when funding becomes available. Work is expected to be completed by December 2016 with the fields reopening for play in April 2017.
