Baseball: Harvard-Westlake field takes shape

November 10, 2009 |  3:19 pm

For about $700,000, North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake is building a new baseball facility at the Franklin Field complex in Encino, and the work is going fast.

Coach Matt LaCour happened to be at the field Tuesday morning and gave me a tour of what it's supposed to look like. Sunken dugouts. Hitting facility. Greg Norman Bermuda grass. Bleachers. Bushes in the outfield similar to Wrigley Field.

It's supposed to be ready by Feb. 1. Take a look at the tour and what's supposed to be built. But the Wolverines still aren't going to be the favorite to win the Mission League. That's the role of defending Southern Section Division II champion Encino Crespi, which I'm sure will look forward to playing the Wolverines on the  new field.
