Snow and Ice become Water and Muckdogs Can't Swim
A question to our city leaders ............ All those huge piles of snow recently deposited in the parking lot of Dwyer Stadium...... When it melts and it will, where will the water go? Let's guess together, shall we. Water will seek the lowest level which at this time is the Visiting Clubhouse , the area around the deck and then right field. This water will be both above ground and below. Right Field is always the wettest spot due to the low spot that is and has been there for years. Also, if I'm not mistaken, the parking lot is part and parcel a part of the stadium, which means it is covered by the existing lease with Rochester. I'll also guess that Rochester wasn't asked about using the stadium as a snow and ice dumping ground.
I'm about to become a "former citizen" of Batavia in 2 weeks. It was a great and eventful , some might say CHAMPIONSHIP year. It's Jan. 14th, city of Batavia. GCC baseball starts in about 2 months. Look at the mountains that continue to be built and ask : "Did we think this thru?"
