Summertime softball is in full swing at Baker Field, and open to participants of all skill levels.
The Wednesday night games start at 6 p.m. and, while they are geared towards adult players, the games have become a gathering place for families, who spread from the diamond and the bleachers to nearby picnic tables and the adjacent playground.
“It’s a fun, ‘everyone welcome’ thing,” said organizer and park commissioner Doug Shier. “We have extra gloves and bats so no softball gear is required. Just show up.”
Shier said a game is also planned for July 4 following the parade at 2 p.m.
