Samaritan Field in Knoxville, Tennessee, is a community baseball field that has been brought back to life and subsequently maintained by passionate, baseball-loving volunteers. In August, field director Matthew Peters arrived at the field to see that the shed which housed all of their equipment had been burned down, and their lawn mower was stolen.
According to a report by WVLT Local 8, when the group of volunteers first found Samaritan field, it was overgrown with weeds and grass and lacked a fence. The volunteers mowed a path, hauled 13 loads of brush, installed a fence, and filled a sinkhole to make their dream of a community gathering spot come true.
Be prepared for emergencies that could happen on the field with this Sports First Aid Kit. This extensive first aid kit is designed for various sports activities for only $25.
