The St. Patrick Athletic Association completed a very important project in the Fall of 2015, as full-field irrigation was installed at Bonin Field.
In the Fall of 2007, the SPAA Board determined irrigating Bonin Field would be a priority. A well was dug on site, and in the Spring of 2008, infield and foul area irrgation was installed. Fast forward to 2015, the SPAA Board received a generous donation from the Melissa Friedges Memorial Fund, which enabled them to add irrigation to the outfield, as well as a zone to water the infield ag-lime. This was all completed in the Fall of 2015.
"We're looking forward to being able to adequately manage the amount of water our field receives in the summer months. There will no longer be any need to lug hoses and move sprinklers to keep the outfield emerald green! We thank the Melissa Friedges Memorial Fund for their donation to allow the project's completion" said Mike Sticha, SPAA President.
