Santa Maria residents protest changing baseball and softball diamonds to all-grass fields
from Santa Maria Times
A softball field near the Minami Center and a Little League baseball diamond at Simas Park are undergoing alterations. The Santa Maria Recreation and Parks Department is currently converting both those dirt-covered fields to all-grass surfaces. The City of Santa Maria hopes the conversions will allow those fields to be used for multiple sports, such as soccer, football or even lacrosse, along with baseball or softball, instead of just being one-sport surfaces. Some Santa Maria residents argue the American pastime won't return those fields once the changes are complete.
