AUSTINTOWN

Township officials are offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest of whoever deliberately damaged a softball field at Austintown Park sometime Saturday.

Todd Shaffer, township parks supervisor, said a group of people had a mud fight in the infield of ball field No. 5 at the park, 6000 Kirk Road.

Shaffer said, “I just don’t understand that.” He explained that maintenance workers discovered the damage Sunday and the fields were last used by the Austintown Girls Softball League late Friday night. He said the damage “pretty much took out the entire infield.”

He further explained there were some parts that were dug 6 to 10 inches deep in the mud, and footprints in the mud showed there were adults and small children. Police are investigating.

For the complete story, read Wednesday's Vindicator or Vindy.com.

Ever hear of dragging the field and filling the footprints and holes? Vandalism? Seriously !

While it stinks that damage was done and had to be repaired, it doesn't sound at all like it was damaged on purpose. An apparently large group of children through adults played in the mud causing the damage. Stupid but not criminal.

Suggest removal:
