Halloween Hangover

One of Greenwood’s two ball diamonds has inherited a small crater, presumably the result of it being the blasting platform for the Halloween fireworks.

Besides it being a nasty disfigurement and scar, hundreds of pieces of paper and cardboard litter the spot, as well as many casings from the firing devices.

Over the past 15 days the wind has scattered much of it further afield and the winter snow will no doubt begin the long process of natural decomposition, as much as cardboard and coloured paper will allow.

An enterprising ball player, combined with a lawyer, might find the new hole and uneven ground in shallow left-field a wonderful opportunity for a profitable lawsuit.
