The Farming ballpark has been in existence since 1946. After 70 years of day games only, night baseball is coming to the Stearns County League community for the 2017 season.
The lighting equipment was purchased from Musco Sports Lighting, a company that's been lighting athletic fields since 1976. Installation and other labor was provided by the excellent folks at Starry Electric in Foley.
The Farming Baseball Association, through excellent stewardship, some help from legalized gambling, a generous donation from a community family, and a loan, has helped to make the dream of night baseball a reality. Congratulations to the dozens and dozens of great folks who had the vision, and worked together to get it done.
Check back soon for the full Stearns County League schedule. The first night game will probably take place in mid-to-late May or so.
