Big Springs Baseball/Softball Program
The new Big Springs baseball/softball field was completed in 1995 and had its first season of use in 1996. The communities of Big Springs and Brule combined players to form the South Platte Baseball and Softball teams. Many volunteers from both towns work endless hours getting the field in top shape. The field has a sodded grass infield and is watered by an underground drip system. The field is used by four different local teams from May to August. A total of 44 youngsters from ages 7 to 13 utilized the ball diamond in 1996. Local teams host other surrounding teams during the summer months on this field. This facility provides many hours of worthwhile enjoyment for youth, parents and other loyal boosters. It is a great asset to our community.
