JACKSONVILLE, Ark.(KTHV)- The wet weather has left several central Arkansas diamonds in the rough. Many were quite soggy, even after a sunny day Wednesday. Officials at Dupree Park in Jacksonville say their fields will be ready for a big tournament this Memorial Day weekend.
Grounds crew member Joe Harris says from the outfield to the infield, the ground is soaked.
"We've been having a little trouble with the water, it's mainly with the rain that we've been having trouble with, but we've been getting it done pretty good."
After the rain let up Wednesday, Harris and his crew got to work preparing the fields for 60 teams to play on this weekend.
"We're just working our way down the line and getting water off the field. That's all we plan to do for the next two days."
