SOARING TO
NEW HEIGHTS
By Jake Levin, contributing writer
One of the many charms exclusive
to baseball parks is the ability to play
around with its dimensions.
Outfield fences come in all shapes
and sizes, such as Fenway Park's
37-and-a-half-foot Green Monster.
Many parks have other endearing
quirks, such as the ivy which drapes
the outfield perimeter at Wrigley Field.
For years, Judy Walden Scarafile
Field at McKeon Park in Hyannis,
Mass. has been graced with a
picturesque location overlooking
the nearby harbor, the sounds of the
Hyannis-Nantucket ferry as audible
as the crack of the wooden bat in the
historic Cape Cod Baseball League.
Unfortunately, one of the other
distinct features of the park was
its sunken right field, built over
wetlands, which at times made the
feet of whomever was manning the
position invisible from the infield.
" It needed to be fixed for a long
time, " noted Brad Pfeifer, president
of the Cape League's Hyannis Harbor
Hawks, McKeon Park's chief tenant.
At long last, the field - which
also had a drop off behind second
base - was evened out and no longer
were portions of the playing surface
upwards of three feet below sea level.
The ballpark received a facelift which
went far beyond right field, however,
further establishing McKeon Park
into one of the finest fields over the
Cape Cod Canal.
Ten years after new lights and a field
house were installed at McKeon Park,
a brand-new scoreboard and dugouts,
as well as a skybox lounge, were also
added to the facility in time for the 2019
season on the Cape. The renovation
was the end result of around 10 months
of nonstop construction which began
as soon as the Harbor Hawks' 2018
campaign came to an end.
Pfeifer said that the renovation of
the park, which was originally built
HIT WITH US. WE'VE
GOT YOU COVERED.
