Repairs to Made at Historic Bowman Field

Williamsport's Bowman Field is often called a historic jewel... But it's a jewel that needs polishing.... Now the city is pitching in to keep the stadium up to date.
Williamsport, Lycoming County- Williamsport's historic bowman field is home to the Crosscutters, a minor league baseball team... is starting to show it's age.
 

That's why city officials decided to spend half a million dollars for repairs. 

 

People say the repairs are important because Bowman Field isn't just for the Crosscutters, it's also widely used by the community, including Williamsport High School and the American Cancer Society.

But an unexpected repair to the roof is leaving some people frustrated.

 

The shingles are damaged which means water can get underneath the grandstand at the ballpark.

Fixing the problem  will cost the city more than 115-thousand dollars, money that was supposed to go to other projects in the stadium like a new seating area.

 
 City council members authorized repairs to begin Monday.
