Round Rock Express to help repair flood damaged Oak Hill fields

Posted: Updated:

Staff members from the Round Rock Express were in Oak Hill Wednesday to see if they could help out with the fields damaged in last weekend's floods.

Oak Hill Youth Association officials say about $100,000 in damage was done to the fields after Williamson Creek came out of its banks. But now the Round Express says they want to help them get the fields back up and running.

"We're here just trying to get a game plan. See exactly what is wrong with the playing surface. We're going to compile a list today of materials and resources and kinda reach out to some of our sponsors and see how they're willing and able to help. And ultimately come back and see if we can get this place back up and open for the season, "Round Rock Express Head Grounds Keeper, Garrett Reddehase said.

"We were so overwhelmed when we saw this on Sunday morning we went through periods of just crying then saying no pick yourself up and let's get it fixed and then crying again. Then when everyone started saying 'let us help' we were just so overwhelmed and it makes you feel good to live in Austin, TX," Vice President of Oak Hill youth Association Hatti Hartman said.

Other individuals and businesses have offered to help them rebuild as well. There are some teams playing in fall league, but other local fields have been offered to those teams to finish out their season. They hope to have the Oak Hill Fields back open soon.
