I wonder if this can be a field that can be utilized by Maryland Youth Cricket Association for future matches? Something for me to investigate.

  1. And as we celebrate MORE youth sports in HoCo, we have children sitting in overcrowded classrooms and learning in “trailer villages”. This could have been the site of HS #13 if Ken Ulman would have done a land swap. Sorry, but I can’t be very happy about a new football field (or cricket field). The priorities in this county are really messed up.
