CONCERT TURNS PASEO OUTFIELD INTO MUD PIT

Baseball community deeply concerned with outcome

By Jay Leon Guerrero

Paseo Stadium’s outfield has turned into a mud pit after the first night of the Indigo Music Festival Friday night.

With a week’s worth of torrential rain, the field was left to heavy traffic of music equipment, vendors and a couple of thousand fans. This has brought up many in the baseball community concerned about the island’s prized baseball facility. Here are just a few received:

  • “So sad man that our only major league field is being used this way.”
  • “I have baseball vets messaging me telling how angry they are about this.”
  • “It’s so sad that the people/coaches that are still trying to keep baseball going and bring it back to live again for our future generation are shutout from voicing their opinions and concerns about the only major league field on Guam.”
  • “Only on Guam because there’s no where else on the island to hold an event. They should hold it in the parking lot.”
  • “It’s going to look 10 times worse than this after the second night. It’s a mess.”

The IMF concludes on Saturday night with another five bands taking the stage in centerfield. All day Saturday, rain continued to fall.

Many historical concerts have taken place at the stadium to include Carlos Santana and other top island/reggae bands. The first IMF show was held at the Guerrero Softball Field right behind the stadium.

LOTTE GIANTS

Another concern is the incoming spring training scheduled for Feb. 1-22 by the Lotte Giants, a pro team from South Korea.

The Giants have already invested in time and resources within the past month by building a pitcher’s training area outside the rightfield wall, refurbishing the infield and donating an infield tarp.

After two days of major foot traffic and a week’s worth of equipment moving, it remains to be seen how the outfield recovery plan will take place.
