Fire Caused by Fireworks Damages Turf at Banner Field

| May 17, 2021 | 0 Comments

A fire was reported at Banner Field at Latrobe Park in Locust Point at 5:49am on Sunday morning. The fire caused some damage to the artificial turf field next to a youth soccer goal on the northern sideline.

Councilman Eric Costello told he is seeking more information, but said it was caused by fireworks.

This section of the field is now entirely black and part of the turf is ripped.

The turf field, bleachers, scoreboard, and path at Banner Field were donated to the community in 2014 by Under Armour.
