On Saturday, Naperville Park District’s first synthetic turf baseball field officially opened at DuPage River Sports Complex at 2807 Washington St.

Field #5 got its new surface thanks to a collaboration between the Naperville Park District and the Naperville Little League. A continued partnership between the Chicago White Sox and the Naperville Little League also helped make the field a reality.

Naperville Central High School alum and current White Sox shortstop Nicky Lopez was on hand for the festivities, throwing out one of the ceremonial first pitches. Field #5 is the first of several fields in Naperville planned to be converted into synthetic turf.
