The DLR council contacted us in September about working with them on planning for a new field.
The plans to redevelop Shanganagh Park have been around since before the Mariners took over from the Blacksox as the main baseball team in the park. We would have liked to keep our own field however the compromise of sharing with cricket was agreed a number of years ago based on the reduction of the overall playing area available.
The Mariners setup a sub-committee to liase with the council planner and after a number of exchanges we believe we got as best as we could given the obvious limitations of sharing a field with cricket.
