forbes always had a pretty nice pitchers mound, the infield quality was decent, and the between inning music was always a treat...but the outfield is horrendous with the track going thru it and the bank in left field...

the one place that always made me wonder was that field at fannett on earth can a ball roll into the parking lot and still be in play...i think in the 3 times we played there we had about 10 inside the park home runs...

McConnellsburgs field was great. never did like our home field (FM) much though
Some fear the last shot, others live for it.

mccllonelsburg field is my favorite to play on. it is flat and has a great infield and outfield. fm is a decent field except for the huge lip at the edge of the infield. but the parking lot thing does baffle me that it is all you can get if the ball goes into the parking lot it should be a homerun.

McConnellsburg defintely has the nicest field around, with the the smooth infield and the outfield is really nice for being a JV soccer field. The pitchers mound is just right. Don Fowler is defintely the best around when it comes to fixin fields up.

I've seen a lot of fields around central PA and the best by far (it's not even close, fellas) is Mt. Union. No lips, grass infield, well maintained, large even outfield, backstop is FAR from the plate, dugouts, totally fenced in eliminating messy ground rules. This field is the best.

Central: once was bad but improved of late
Tyrone: might as well play in rock field
Claysburg: dismal
Tussey: joke
Bellwood Antis: nice but small
Bedford: ditto
So. Huntingdon: new fence...rock infield
Lewistown: not too nice...the infield is rough

Rookie, FM's ground rules are that if the ball touchs the parking lot, whether in the air or rolling, if it touches the pavement, it is a homerun.
