The crack of the bat will sound across the field during the Springfield Board of Education's annual Picnic in the Parking Lots on Aug. 14.
Ten teams have signed up for a chance to compete in the "springFIELD OF DREAMS" batting contest.
The contest will be part of the activitives during the picnic which is slated for 5 to 8 p.m. in the back lots between Springfield High School and Springfield Middle School. Food, fun, and entertainment - at no cost to participants or taxpayers - is on tap.
This year, organizers have designed a plan to include more participants. Drawings to secure one of the three available "at-large" batting positions will be held 15 minutes before
