Parks Maintenance Crews Reach New Heights Replacing Backstops for Baseball Season

backstop optBefore the chalk outlines can be laid on the baseball diamonds this spring season, the infrastructure needed to be checked to keep spectators safe in the stands. After 25 years of wear and tear, the wire backstops at the HW Cox Park baseball fields needed to be replaced. Town Parks Maintenance Crews swapped out all the backstops themselves, and kept the process completely in-house, saving the Town thousands of dollars.

Using lift trucks from the Fleet Services Division of Public Services, crews were able to safely replace the 30 foot tall backdrops, each one in about a week’s time. Three of the diamonds were completed last year, with the final field finished in mid-February. With baseball season right around the corner, the fields in Collierville will be in “tip top” condition all the way up to 30 feet.
