Lights, Baseball and Grass all coming to Pecos.
The Pecos League schedule is set to be released on November 15th and fans in Reeves County Texas are excited at the possibility of having a team play in the Martinez Sports Complex on I-20 and Highway 285 in Pecos. Reeves County is in process of improving lighting, moving the outfield fence and replanting grass to have a team for the 2013 Season. The Pecos Bills would be in the Pecos League's Southern Division and would go head to head with their neighbors to the South the Alpine Cowboys and their neighbors to the North the Roswell Invaders. A large oilfield man camp is being built by Targa Logisitics that could hold 500 oilfield workers. Andrew Dunn has attempted to land in Pecos Texas since the inception of the Pecos League in 2010. 2013 may finally be the time for Pecos to play ball. This charge was for baseball is being lead by Rojelio Alvarado who is Reeves County Commisioner Precinct 1. The original contractor who installed the lighting has been found and there is a plan in place to move the light poles and add additional fixtures. The light level will be improved to a minimum professional standard. Commisioner's Court has addressed funding needed to make the changes to the lights. Commisioner's Court on November 12th will approve Pecos League Schedule. Gone will be the skinned infield, it will be replaced by natural grass. Gone will be the perimeter fence that made Martinez Park a youth/softball field. Martinez Park will return to its original configuration which is 345/410/325 in the lowest elevation in the Pecos League. The issues can be resolved to clear the way for the Bills to take the team in 2013.
