Last year Squires Field was voted as the top field of the year among high school coaches. Last week, the stadium received a huge upgrade with a 10 inning scoreboard in left field.
“Guthrie Baseball has one of the steepest traditions in Oklahoma as far as baseball goes,” head baseball coach Casey Porter said. “There are a lot of people who have helped build that tradition.”
The latest example is now hanging on the left field wall in a stunning 26 by 10 foot scoreboard and replaces the (14 x 5) scoreboard that was up for several seasons.
Along the base of the scoreboard, a sign reads ‘Donated by Guthrie Little League Baseball Association.’
Last April, Daniel Calvert, President of the Guthrie Little League Baseball Association, presented Porter and the program with a check of $14,005 for the scoreboard.
“The new scoreboard gives us an opportunity to show our appreciation and invest in an item that will be used for years to come,” Calvert said.
