Batter Up! The Mineral Ball Field Receives a Makeover

This summer the Mineral Ball Field has received a complete makeover. Over the past few months the park has been working on improving the area by installing a new irrigation system, reseeding the field, rebuilding the horseshoe pits and will soon be replacing all the picnic tables and fire ring. “The ball field is in great condition and the crack of a bat and cheers for a homerun will once again be common sounds in Mineral,” stated Superintendent Martin. “Families looking of a place to hold reunions or businesses looking for a cool place the company picnic will find everything they need here.”

Along with the improvements to the field, the park has designated the area next to the field a group campsite. The site will accommodate overnight groups of up to 30 people and 2 recreational vehicles.

The Mineral Ball Field is located along Highway 36 in Mineral, CA.
