Baseballs bombard homes; field shut down
by UPI

PORTLAND, Ore. -- A little league baseball field in Portland, Oregon, was shut down after neighboring residents complained their homes were being bombarded with foul balls.

The Hollywood Little League was forced to close its newly renovated field after neighbors complained the foul balls were causing a safety hazard, KPTV, Portland, Ore. reported Monday.

"Many of these are hitting our homes with a lot of force. It's only a matter of time before there's a personal injury or a broken window," resident Chris Altenhofen said.

Hollywood Little League organizers said they worked closely with the city to ensure the field was up to snuff and did not intend to exclude neighbors' considerations from the upgrade plans.

Organizers said they will install additional safety equipment as long as they are allowed to reopen the field.
