BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — The baseball fields at Belle Terrace Park were in such bad condition, parents said their kids were getting injured and no longer wanted to play T-ball or softball.

Jose Montero said after his 7-year-old daughter told him she didn't want to play on the fields anymore, he decided to take it into his own hands. So, with the help of sponsors, children and parents, everyone started pitching in to rebuild the two baseball fields that were destroyed by gophers and squirrels.

Without the local sponsors who donated tractors, trucks, granite, a water buffalo and backstop boards that will be installed at a later date, the children's new fields would have just been a dream.
