Falcon Field receives a home-run renovation

SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany – Falcon Field, a children's baseball field located in base housing here, is currently undergoing a renovation scheduled to be completed Sept. 15, 2017.

The renovation will provide Falcon Field with artificial turf, which is safer, more durable and requires less maintenance than a grass field. In addition, the field will be equipped with new fencing and a drainage system.

"This was one of the eight major quality of life improvement projects selected from the 2016 Commander in Chief’s Installation Excellence Award funding,” said Maj. Joseph Adams, 52nd Contracting Squadron commander.

Members from the 52nd Force Support Squadron, 52nd Civil Engineer Squadron and 52nd CONS worked together with a German contracting company to initiate the project.

“Our mission here thrives when our families are happy and active,” said, Lt. Col. Ryan Crowley, 52nd CES commander. “This sports field, and other improvement projects, gives our families the facilities they need to enjoy their time while at Spangdahlem. I look forward to seeing our kids using the field very soon.”
