Lakeside Youth Baseball facility damaged by Friday’s flood

JUNE 19, 3:21 P.M. – The Lakeside Youth Baseball organization and facility has suffered hits from powerful storms before, and now it has happened again.

A June 16 storm caused localized flooding in Lakeside, and it was enough to damage LYB fields, concessions and equipment – days before two scheduled all-star tournaments it was set to host.

The timing was particularly unfortunate, said LYB Secretary Connie Fredericksen, because the regular season has just finished and all of the equipment that managers carry was at the field in the equipment room during the storm.

More than a game


Eric Parker, a student at Highland Springs High School and member of the varsity baseball team, stepped outside into the bright sun after spending hours inside his school taking the SAT June 3. Instead of going home to relax once he finished, he decided to head over to the baseball field.

“Where’s a mitt?” he asked and then joined in on the Highland Springs community softball game. To warm up he quickly tossed a ball around with Henrico County Firefighter Frank Otey, and then it was time to play.
