The Edmonson County High School baseball field was vandalized over the weekend and a reward is being offered for someone that helps find who's responsible.
ECHS Head Coach Bo West said that sometime before daylight Saturday, someone broke a latch off the fence to gain entrance to the field, which is located behind the EC 5/6 Center. Vandals also spray painted profanity on the concrete surface near the concession area and the window to the concession stand was busted.
Booster clubs often struggle to maintain equipment and facilities necessary for their individual sports or activities, and nearly 100% of effort used to support them is parent or other volunteer work, in addition to the countless hours coaches put in off the fields.
Brownsville Police is currently investigating but they have no suspects.
Coach West said there are cameras inside the concession stand but they were not able to capture anyone from the outside in the video frame.
Local volunteers have pitched in and are offering a $1000 reward on behalf of the baseball team for information leading to the arrest and conviction to the vandal(s) responsible for the damage.
If you have any information in relation to this incident, you are asked to contact Brownsville Police at 270-597-3814.
