Fields FAQ List

West Field Complex

Munhall Borough streets will be swept on Friday.  This is scheduled 1 year in advance due to it being a D.E.P. requirement.  Since the truck is here, we are having them sweep along field and the entire parking lot.  This will be done first thing in morning, but parking for games will be very limited until this is completed.  Parking along front of building on West St will be permitted as long as PA DOT rules are followed, ie no jamming on corners, double parking etc.

NO PARKING in police nor fire department parking lots.  Please make umpires aware and have them explain to teams prior to games.

WildThings Stadium / W&J College

Please tell the teams that play at 8am and 10:15am on Sunday to use Trich Rd and BSI Way to enter the venues. Sunday is the Antique Fair in the lots and if they try to enter the front way they will get stuck in traffic.

Plum Boro Fields

Do not park in the Municipal Building Parking lot prior to 5pm on Thursday and Friday.  You will be towed.  Please park by field 5.  (see graphic on fields list)

Seton Hill University

Do not park down by the field!  Park in the upper lot above the field.  Boyle Lot.  See graphic on Fields FAQ List.

Monroeville Park West

Do not park in the grass by the tennis courts or the fields side of the road.  Woods side is permitted.   (see graphic on fields list)
