ARCANUM — Arcanum officially dedicated its baseball and softball fields on Friday afternoon with the help of officials from Good Samaritan Hospital.
The fields, which are named Good Samaritan North Fields, opened last year. The dedication originally was scheduled for last year but was postponed because of weather, which allowed the school to add scoreboards and bring in the fences of the softball field prior to the dedication.
Arcanum-Butler Local School District Superintendent John Stephens, Good Samaritan Hospital Vice President of Operations Adams and Dr. James Klosterman each spoke to the gathered crowd on the baseball field prior to the start of the games between Arcanum and National Trail.
Adams, Klosterman, Arcanum softball coach Rick Stone and Arcanum baseball coach Randy Baker then threw out ceremonial first pitches with baseball player Nathan Kubik and softball player Shelby Howard doing the catching duties.
Both Arcanum teams beat National Trail to conclude the evening.
