It was a sad day for us when our long-time “PA Guy” passed away after suffering a massive stroke. Yes, Al Knudsen, our announcer, won’t be around anymore to welcome every player by name to bat, introduce our buddy groups and upcoming events, celebrate our home runs, and bring about smiles and pure joy to our many KML players. We will all miss him greatly.
Intertwined with Al’s passing is your board of directors agreeing to what will be Phase III of our Ten-Year Anniversary Capital Improvement campaign started in 2018.
- Phase I was replacement of our playing field, building a pergola in our Kiwanis Memory Garden, and resurfacing our concession stand floor.
- Phase II (during the pandemic) included topping off our bleachers with a steel blue roofing. Spectators will really enjoy this improvement!
- Phase III will be enhancing our player experience by upgrading our digital scoreboard to an interactive video board with new audio capabilities.
