Kansas City’s first adaptive softball field opens on Saturday

In a time full of closings and cancellations, this ribbon cutting ceremony is a welcome event. Our friends at KC Parks and Recreation are hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony and ceremonial first pitch at the new adaptive softball field at Pleasant Valley Park on Saturday, July 11th.

This is the first field of it’s kind in the Kansas City region. The nearest fields until now would have been in Topeka, Omaha and St.Louis.

They have invited players/teams from across the region and expect a good turnout for the ceremony. They will be hosting games following the ceremony. The field cost $150,000 to complete and was funded through a public/private partnership.
