This is the same field The Vintage Babes Softball Team organized a LADIES ONE PITCH Tournament in 2013.

With the help of the CA and others, the field was recently resurfaced with a mixture of dirt, sand and other properties that help soften the ground. The softer surface allows a ground ball to bounce in a more predictable fashion resulting in fewer injuries.

Both the Softball Club and the SCC Community Association worked together to get the funds to resurface Don Senk Field making it a safer place for games this year.
