LIGHT UP YATES CITY is a project of the Harvest Home Baseball Field Committee and Elba-Salem Park District and was inspired by the desire and need to meet regulations for night games.  Our mission is to add lights to meet those regulations and further utilize our field beyond daytime games by providing longer playing hours.  Adding lights will accomodate leagues in our community that will allow us to serve children of all ages and provide them with a sense of welcome, well-being and safety during practices and night games.
