American Legion Baseball State Tournament - Holt-Moffitt Field

In addition to the ridiculous tournament management by Am Legion Commissioners, what a disappointment with the field and facilities for the recent American Legion State tournament held at Holt-Moffitt Field. Of all the nice baseball parks in the state of NC, it's unbelievable that the Legion decided to hold the state tournament here. The condition and maintenance of the field was very disappointing - right side batter's box had foot holes similar to a church softball field and the outfield mountain grass was not cut. The stadium was not suited to handle the crowds and it was very difficult for many people to even see the games because of where they had to sit. Hopefully the city of Lexington can make necessary improvements and the Am Legion will consider this feedback in the future when it chooses sites for the state tourney.

I am not familiar with the field that you mention. I have seen many like that and can not imagine holding AL Baseball at one especially tourney play. A bad field can make a damn good player look less than average plus lead to injuries. There are many good legion fields in the state I am sure. The teams competing at tourney level should be have the luxury of playing on a college or minor league quality field.
