    Four mature blue spruce trees were extricated from the Lake House grounds and transported to Stagecoach Park as part of a $4,000 package of improvements to the fields off Evergreen Parkway and Stagecoach Boulevard.

    The project included a new seating wall behind the backstop, aluminum bleachers, six replacement trees and an ADA-accessible path from both sides of the park into the baseball backstop area. The slope behind the backstop was regraded to improve safety and reduce erosion.

    Before the bleachers, there was no place for people to sit and watch the games.
