Cardinal Newman dedicates new field

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Cardinal Newman dedicated its new synthetic turf baseball field Saturday during its annual alumni game.
The field isn’t quite completed — the dugouts are still awaiting screens — but the Cardinals have been playing on their new field since their season opener against Petaluma on Feb. 24.
The new field came in handy Tuesday. With Casa Grande’s field wet from recent rains, the first day of the Gauchos’ three-day Adam Westcott Memorial Tournament was moved to Cardinal Newman. The tournament will conclude today and Thursday at Casa Grande.
