Arkansas town gets new baseball complex 21 years after tornado

The Associated Press - July 6, 2018 10:17 am

COLLEGE STATION, Ark. (AP) – An Arkansas town struck by a tornado 21 years ago finally has a new baseball complex in an area devastated by the storm. U.S. flags were put out Wednesday for the Independence Day dedication of the College Station Community Sports Complex. The March 1, 1997, tornado was among a dozen storms blamed for 25 deaths across Arkansas. A youth baseball team played at the field in College Station, a town of about 400 near Little Rock. Supporters for years worked to get funding for a replacement field.
