On a sunny day last week Jeff and Scott Baysinger of SJB Construction installed new safety netting on all three of the baseball fields at Duncan’s Fields. The new netting is courtesy of profits from the Tod Horton Memorial Co-ed Softball Tournament.

There have been safety concerns for players and spectators and the new nets should help with those. In previous years proceeds from the tournament that bears Horton’s name have purchased aluminum bleachers for the fields.Baysinger said, “Tod would really like this; he would be here helping us if he could.”

Horton was a former West End Youth League president and coached many youth sports; he died on Oct. 19, 2010, from a timber felling accident.Even though he is gone the tournament continues to raise money that benefits projects that were important to him.
