At the old Garcelon Field grandstand, the flagpoles were atop the press box behind the spectators. So anybody who wanted to gaze at Old Glory during the national anthem had to twist right around to see it. The renovated facility, says project manager Mike Gustin, will feature flagpoles behind the scoreboard, at the north end of the field. "Now you’ll just be able to look across the field," Gustin says. "It’ll be nice."

How "green," speaking environmentally and not chromatically, will the renovated Garcelon Field be? The answer's mixed. Unlike the old grass field, the new FieldTurf playing surface will neither support wildlife nor inhale carbon dioxide. But in other ways an artificial field has significant environmental advantages over grass.
