How about the damage to the Memorial Field on West Road in Marlborough, CT? Our entire baseball team, as well as several kids & parents from the Marlborough team were stranded for several hours when downed trees and power lines blocked us in to the field. Wind and hail pelted our cars (those of us who made it to the cars - some were stuck in the dugout during the storm!) I'm sure I speak for all of us when I express our thanks to the tree crews, electrical crews and the lady across the street for the "use of her facilities". We appreciate it.
