Hurley City Council hears plea to improve ball fields

HURLEY — At their Tuesday evening meeting, members of the Hurley City Council gave an informal thumbs up for plans to improve local ball fields.

Brad Benton, speaking for Hurley Area Youth Softball and Baseball, said that he and his colleagues would like to “spruce up” local fields.

He specifically asked permission to remove some of the pine trees around the baseball field.

“It’s very wet,” said Benton, explaining that the trees keep part of the field shaded so that it does not fully dry out.

As a result, he said, “It’s very difficult to maintain.”
