Taxpayers Left with Bill after Vandals Target Mercedes Ball Park Multiple Times
MERCEDES – A local baseball league is looking for answers. Their concession stand was damaged again and it could affect all of the kids who are part of the league.
Early Saturday morning, one of the board members for the Mercedes Pony League found footprints, broken locks and stains all over their walls.
This marked the third time their concession stand was vandalized.
"It's just very frustrating to know that somebody is damaging this property and trying to steal our product when it's for the kids," says Justin Cadena, President of Mercedes Pony League.
Cadena says the money generated by the concession stand is used to pay for umpires, tournaments, insurance and most importantly, jerseys for the kids.
This year, the Mercedes Pony League expects to have around 300 kids participate, and they rely on their concession stand to raise much needed money.
