Big League Dreams fields in Mansfield, TX are perfect no matter the weather. Turf infields with well-kept outfields

Where is the best place to eat on the road after a game?

What is the funniest thing you have ever seen on a softball field?
Jon Kilburn farted in mid swing and it was loud enough for both dugouts to hear as well as the infield. We all thought it was fake until he said he might need to wipe

I'm pretty much an open book. Nothing to hide
