These new ballfields were made possible in a partnership agreement through the City of Moberly and Moberly Parks and Recreation for MACC’s Baseball & Softball programs that started this school year.

Some of the renovations that were done on these fields were constructing the dugouts, creating the bull pens, batting cages and a lot of dirt work.
