Wiser Field temporarily closed

RICHLAND, Wash. -- A south Richland playfield will be closed while the field is re-sodded.

Wiser Field in Badger Mountain Community Park will be shut down for the next six weeks. The rest of the park will remain open.

Richland has wanted to redo the sod for years, but didn't have the money. The project will cost nearly $30,000 due to special sod being used to improve the life of Wiser Field.
