Melcher Street Park baseball field gets a new backstop


Mike Moeder, of St. Henry, lifts up a tarp to check if the ground underneath had remained unfrozen at Melcher Street Part in Minster Wednesday, Jan. 27. A pole will be placed into the ground next to the front of the dugout which will be part of a new backstop Moeder is helping to build. Nets are also being installed to prevent foul balls from hitting nearby houses. Luke Gronneberg | Sidney Daily News
