Before the Franklin Township Little League season begins, there will need for a cleanup and repair project at the Phifer Ice Dam field.

"I didn't need this headache," said Wayne Wentz, president of the Franklin Township Athletic Association, when he heard that one of the dugouts was destroyed by wind during Saturday's storm.

Apparently the wind lifted the roof off the dugout and when it landed, it broke down a portion of the block walls.

Brian and Tammy Marshall saw the damage to the dugout early Sunday morning from the rear of their property and the couple were concerned that possibly children might view the area as a good place to visit, so Brian shored up the roof to prevent further damage.
