Morenzone Ballfield

1323 W Center St Manteca CA 95337


Here’s the Manteca history question of the day: Why did the city honor Fred Morenzone years ago by naming after him the adult softball field on Center Street West of Union Road? Katie Reed of the Manteca Parks and Recreation Department is trying to find out. The city is organizing a rededication ceremony on April 6 to mark the completion of the lighted baseball field improvements to accommodate Little League baseball play from 13 to 15 years old.


Morenzone Field — originally created for adult softball — could be adapted to accommodate the baseball play of the 13-to 15-year-old Little League. Once all costs include renovation of the infield for 90-foot base lines and construction of new bleachers as well as dugouts and fence improvements, the price tag would be $510,000.


The city has the resources to pursue the renovation of the west Union Road’s Center Street area. But to make it happen, the council would have to use park-related funds to move other initiatives already listed for funding in the current budget. Major Willie Weatherford and Councilman Vince Hernandez are urging the council to do just that when they meet Tuesday at 7 p.m. 295 Cherry Lane at the Manteca Senior Center.
