McGirr Sports Fields

McGirr Sports Fields are located at Dover Bay High School on McGirr Rd. A softball hot spot, there are always plenty of games going on during the peak season of March to August. Slo-pitch and fastball teams play in the evenings during the week and all day and evenings on the weekends. The fields are also home to local soccer matches. These fields are very well maintained with a central club house in between all 4 diamonds.

Recently I discovered two of the four diamonds have had a concrete brick wall put up around the dug-outs that wasn't such a good idea. The wall blocks not only spectators view, but airflow, causing them to be muggy and uncomfortable. I've never been to jail but I imagine these walls would be quite similar. I'm not entirely sure but the other diamonds may also have this done to the dugo-outs which would be quite disappointing. The fields are regularly hosed down and groomed during all seasons and a concession stand makes avaliable various foods and drinks - including alcoholic. Above the clubhouse/concession stand is a patio with a clear view of all 4 diamonds looking down. McGirr boasts the best ball fields in the city!
