Happy Valley Optimist is the most embarrassing baseball field to play on !Someone else definatley needs to be in control of the optimist. There are no restrooms out there, the concession stand is gross and gross people working in them no running water for hand washing. where is all this money going to because its not going on that field that's for sure ! its going in someones pocket ! the dugouts look terrible. Then when it comes time to do the fun day in the park it really sucks to !!!! They have taken away all the good stuff like fireworks face paintings and such til now all they have is just the jumping things and its so hot out there kids don't even play on them. I think its time for new people to take over Happy Valley optimist that would make a difference in the ball field because its really shameful and embarrassing out there !!!!!!

Why don't you getting of of your ass and do like we used to as a family and work on the field. Join the optimist and help. When I was there the field was always neat, we painted the dugouts, food was good, and day in the park was awesome. I found that if people like you whereto help and stop complaining, it may once again be nice.

The Umpires have to get paid, so that's where some of the money goes. I don't know how much they get, but they have games at least a couple times a week, and for whatever reason, the Umpires are not expected to volunteer their time. I know Jeff, who appears to be in charge of most of the duties at the field. You won't find anyone more honest than him, and his wife. He works hard at his full time job, and spends nearly all his free time at the Optimist Park working for free. I have a lot of respect for Jeff, and know he would never take one red cent that did not belong to him.
