Dugouts to see renovations at Basil Griffin Park

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Baseball fans in the area will be seeing some renovations to the baseball fields at Basil Griffin Park soon.

Friday morning, during Warren County Fiscal Court, new dugouts were approved for purchase.

This nearly $84,500 project will update 14 dugouts on seven different fields.

Right now, according to Chris Kummer with Warren County Parks and Recreation, the current dugouts are a hazard to the youth of Warren County and were built in the 1970’s.

“Up to this point, since 2000, we replace those dugouts infrastructure roofs and all the wood five times. And in the condition that they’re in right now, I think it’s a better investment, right now, to make a long term purchase for a more sustainable product,” said Kummer.

Kummer said they have already done one field and it looks much better and safer for baseball players to enjoy.
