Light pole falls on Bridgeforth Field

As a result of the storms on Wednesday, a wooden light pole fell onto a fence at the newly renovated Bridgeforth Field.

The pole fell on the third base side of the field and missed the batting cages that were a part of those renovations.

The issue forced the Royals to swap Thursday’s home game and a future home game with the Purcellville Cannons.

Saturday’s game against the Front Royal Cardinals was moved up from 7 pm to 5 pm.

All future home games expected to start at an earlier time until the light pole is fixed.

Gate open at 5:30 with activities and vendors ready to roll until first pitch at 7 pm.

Admission is free thanks to Green to Ground Electrical Services and is a great way to support the Cardinals and Front Royal Little League.

Little Leaguers are encouraged to wear their uniforms and will get to run on the field with the players before the game.

The Cardinals enter the game with a 5-6 record on the season and face the Woodstock River Bandits who are off to a decent start at 8-5.
