Construction for the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation’s Youth Development Park began on July 3, 2012. The initial work completed between July 3 and July 23 included installation of sediment and erosion control measures, construction fencing, the removal of the older equipment (playscape, backstop, fencing), and the initial excavation of the turf around the edges of the ballfield site. The main drainage trenches beneath the field were also excavated to depth.
