At 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday evening (May 29), the Sedalia Parks Department dedicated two T-Ball Fields at Katy Park. The fields are the Lonnie E. Schott Memorial Field and the Bill G. Arnold Memorial Field.

Friends and family, some as far away as Colorado, gathered for the ceremonial ribbon cuttings on the new T-Ball  fields. According to their families, both Schott and Arnold were not only avid sports fans who played for the love of the game. They were also coaches and mentors to the young athletes of the area.

Honors like the dedication of a ball field is reserved for those who have given a lot of time and effort to their community, and have made a great impact on those whose lives they have touched. It was evident at Katy Park ion Wednesday that the honor is well deserved for these two men.
