Before the umpire shouts “play ball” at Lenape Park in Upper Milford Township next month, Upper Milford Township Youth Association baseball and softball teams will be able to doff their caps to an American flag flying on a newly installed flagpole.
Located between the snackbar and the restrooms, the flagpole is visible to teams playing on both the upper and lower ball fields in the park.
Barry Williams, the Upper Milford Youth Association’s baseball coordinator, thanked the Upper Milford Board of Supervisors at last week’s supervisors’ meeting for their role in getting the flagpole put in place in time for the start of spring sports.
“I appreciate the township’s due diligence in getting it up before baseball season,” Williams said. “It really enhances that end of the park.”
