All inclusive baseball field built in Ste. Genevieve

STE. GENEVIEVE COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Build it and they will come. That's what they're hoping for in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

It's called Challenger Field. An all inclusive field that will be home to a baseball league for those with special needs.

It's the brainchild of a deputy who has a son with special needs.

The field is artificial turf, making it conducive to rainy weather but also makes it more accessible to players.

The park cost more than $600,000 and it was paid for mainly through the generosity of the community. They're still putting on the finishing touches, and if all goes well organizers hope to hold a ribbon cutting in the next month or so.
