The Trenton Park Board has approved an offer by the General Manager of the Chillicothe Mudcats baseball team for the Mudcats to play a doubleheader at Burleigh Grimes Field June 9th.

The Mudcats are to host a team from Omaha that Monday night.

Chillicothe Mudcats General Manager, Doug Doughty, attended yesterday's Trenton Park Board meeting. He said a Mudcats game last year at Burleigh Grimes Field went well despite a rainy day.

Doughty said playing at Trenton is to promote good will, and he wants the Mudcats to be an area team. He also said he likes the field.

Although the Mudcats are a not-for profit organization and rely on sponsors for team expenses, he said the Mudcats are not seeking sponsors at Trenton. Among existing Mudcats sponsors are Barnes Baker Motors and Coca-Cola.

The Mudcats are to receive the gate from the games at Trenton---but not the concessions, which would be available to be handled locally.

In the only other action item, the Park Board approved an expenditure, not to exceed $1500, to re-route a water line in the Rock Barn bathroom area. It's to prevent a waterline freeze if the building is not heated enough. The goal of the project is to reduce heating costs at the Rock Barn. Parks Superintendent, Jason Shuler, says Trenton Municipal Utilities is willing to assist with equipment and labor if the Park Department purchases the materials. Park Superintendent Shuler has estimated the cost of materials and concrete around $1000.

Park Board President, Don Altes, expressed concern about the weather delaying work to upgrade Johnson Ballfield. Altes said he would hate to see just one ballfield being available again during the upcoming season at the Ebbe Sports Complex.

The Board tabled a decision regarding lettering for a planned Ebbe Sports Complex sign. The Board wants to see sample letters before making a decision. Costs for the signs range from nearly $1300 to slightly over $2000.

There also was discussion, but no decision, regarding another sign for that area. Cost figures are to be sought.
