Lakeside Diamonds Approved


By a 5 to 2 vote the Fond du Lac City Council last night approved Youth Baseball’s proposal to build two new baseball diamonds at Lakeside Park. That followed plenty of discussion and a narrow 4 to 3 vote against tabling the matter so that details could be worked out on what fields Youth Soccer could use for Walleye Weekend with the two baseball fields taking up some of the space they would use. Ryan Haus of Youth Baseball told the Council that’s a discussion Youth Baseball doesn’t need to be involved in. Fond du Lac resident Mary Wilcox felt the discussion should be tabled so that issue could be worked out. After the Council’s vote Council President Sam Meyer said he understood where people were coming from with two sons that play baseball and a daughter that plays soccer, but he feels the baseball diamonds will be good for the City. He also feels the soccer situation will be worked out.

Nothing like throwing existing programs under the bus.

It's about time they get rid of the soccer fields. This is America, we play American games here.

In case you don't know there is North, Central and South America.
Soccer is a big American sport.
