(Harrisburg, PA) – In preparation for the second annual Little League Classic, Reynolds managed several improvement projects at BB&T Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The minor league park hosted two major league teams, the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies, on August 19, 2018 in front of an audience of Little League World Series players and their families.
“The schedule to complete the stadium improvements in time for the game was very tight,” said David Witmer, Reynolds project manager. “But watching the 16 Little League regional champion teams trade stories and high fives with the major league players and seeing the big guys get energized by the kids was very inspirational.”
Starting in April 2018, Reynolds renovated the shower rooms in both club houses, which included new drywall ceilings and floors, tile, shower heads and controls, paint, and carpet. Improvements to the field included new netting along the back stop and first and third bases as well as repairs to the exterior fence and batter’s eye screen. A new parking lot added space for 60 cars, and landscaping was given a refresh.
Prior to last year’s Little League Classic game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago Cubs, Reynolds renovated the 2,500-seat stadium in just 67 days. The upgrades included a grandstand deck addition, box seating upgrades and safety modifications, new turf and storm water drainage, and new fencing and padding.
BB&T Ballpark is home of the Williamsport Crosscutters, a Philadelphia Phillies affiliate.
