Capitol Little League serving Olympia, Lacey, Tumwater & Thurston County

News Detail


Oct, 2019

Board meeting time change to 5 PM Oct 6 at Mills & Mills


Field Rebuild

We agreed to remove the grass from Field 4 and possibly Field 3 at last meeting.

I have asked Black Hills Excavating to give us materials estimate (per field) for soils as they recently rebuilt Capitol High softball field.

Great Western price on infield mix is between $25 and $28 per yard IF we haul.

Ewing sells one ton bag for $570 retail price for Truface soil conditioner—this is tan color and suitable to use on infield area. 

Ewing sells 50lb bag of red at retail of $23 per bag.

Commodities Unlimited will deliver sand for about $225 per 10 yard load.

We need to remove and haul away the sod from the infield/s. A sod cutter is best option for this step.

Sprinklers are located behind the mound and by dugouts on each field and there may be one behind the plate as well.

Dugout repair

Reed Wilder has approval for his Eagle project to repair the dugouts on fields 6, 5 and 3.

We advised him the league would cover supplies.  His job is to get the labor and supervise the project.

He indicated the framing is ok in most places and only a few studs need replacing.

This is his materials list:

- 51 Sheets of 4x8 siding (If needed, we can re-evaluate to see if any sheets are re-usable)
- 3 8-foot 2x4 studs for framing
- 1 8-foot 2x4 pressure treated for a sill-plate (Field 3, 3rd base side)
- 2 frame L brackets (Field 5, 1st base side)
- Paint (we have paint)
- Nails (we have some but not sure right kind).

I have asked James Stacy, RL and Chris Chamberlain to review products to determine best options for the siding.  I plan to approach Home Depot, Bayveiw Lumber and Lincoln Creek Lumber to see if we can get either wholesale or contractor price for siding.
