HARRODSBURG - Austin Robey, 14, will be glad when she doesn't have to share a field with the tee ball and baseball players.
Robey plays softball in the Anderson Dean League and was at the park Friday afternoon for the celebration of Ralph and Ruth Anderson's $200,000 donation that will be used to build a girls' softball field at the Anderson-Dean Community Park.
Then we "won't have to wait around for the other fields to open up," she said.
County officials expect construction to begin next month and that the complex will be open for softball season this May. Judge-Executive John Trisler said that the donation will "make a dream come true."
There were more than 100 softball players at the park for the Andersons' check presentation. The girls helped unveil the sign, "Future Site of the Ruth M. Anderson Softball Complex," and were treated to a cookout by the State Bank and Trust Co. Trisler said that Harrodsburg Mayor Lonnie Campbell helped out on the grill.
