When asked his opinion at the opening of two new athletic fields at Pan Pacific Park, St. James’ School second-grader and Wilshire Warriors baseball player William LaBombard said:  “I am so excited to play on the new field with my baseball team!” His was a sentiment shared by the scores of local children who participated in the May 5 ribbon-cutting ceremonies overseen by Councilman David Ryu and the city’s Department of Recreations and Parks.

LaBombard had a game on the new field the afternoon of the ceremonies, and he (and his coach and father, John) later pronounced the new facilities a vast improvement over the “badly maintained dirt patches” on which the boys and girls have been playing in recent years.

Councilman Ryu said that he and his staff have been focused on this project since he took office in July of 2015, as the Councilman describes in more detail in his “Council Report” column in this month’s Larchmont Chronicle.
