After more than two years of planning, Newberry's city staff will honor what looks to be the world's largest baseball park when it's built.

On Friday, Februar. 25, a groundbreaking ceremony will be held at the intersection of US 27 and Southwest 30th Avenue with free food and speeches by state, county and local officials. The public is invited to attend this free event, which begins at 2 pm.

Although construction won't begin until April after the city accepts bids from contractors, the ceremony is intended to symbolize that the park's construction has been approved. The mayor will be given a golden spade to dig up the first soil at the site.

The park should open in October.

City Manager Keith Ashby will moderate the event.
