The press box at Renfree Field off Auburn Blvd caught fire earlier this evening. Some of the field was also damaged. No injuries were reported.
Originally built in 1968, Renfree Field was designed to provide a premier baseball facility for local youth and adult organizations. It had been renovated in 2000, but has been in disrepair for the last year or so.
The field is named after Harry Renfree, Director of what was the City of Sacramento’s Recreation & Parks Department from 1954 to 1969.
