Lance Berkman Field dedicated in Sesser

SESSER, IL (KFVS) - The Cardinals Care organization dedicated a baseball field complex honoring Lance Berkman in Sesser, Ill. Tuesday.

Residents from Sesser joined Cardinals Care to dedicate the complex.

The Lance Berkman Field is a 23 acre complex, featuring four new baseball and softball fields.  

The charity normally names fields after members of the Cardinals Hall of Fame, but this time they decided to honor Berkman's contribution to their efforts.

Cardinals president Bill DeWitt III attended the event.  

"This is out of our normal zone," DeWitt said.  "But this is Cardinal country, I would think anywhere in Cardinal country, if we can develop these great partnerships with the community, we'll be ready to help out."

The complex has room to grow, and hopes to grow in the future.
