FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The World Baseball Academy and CEO Caleb Kimmel announced plans for a fourth turf baseball field at the WBA's headquarters at the ASH Centre.

The WBA is partnering with the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation on the project, who is pitching in a donation up to $100,000 to help the cause.

The new field will be a fully adaptive field to cater to children of all different abilities. The WBA has already raised over half of the needed $1.1 million to build the new field. They hope to begin construction next year.
