Little League baseball at Aumiller Park in Bucyrus will have a new and improved look by next spring. A ground-breaking ceremony was held Tuesday morning for a $100,000 improvement project. Bucyrus Little League President Travis Hardy says it includes contruction of two batting cages, installation of new outfield fences, and new catcher's equipment. And Bucyrus Area Chamber of Commerce Director Deb Pinion says this project is not intended only for the enjoyment of the players, it's meant to help the entire Bucyrus community, largely because of the baseball tournaments the city hosts and the visitors they attract. All of the money for the improvements was donated, with the Timkin Foundation giving $75,000, the Bucyrus Area Foundation giving $15,000, the Bucyrus Rotary Club giving $10,000, and the Shunk Foundation giving $5000. The work should be completed in time for the umpire to shout "Play Ball".
