Community honors memory of Jake Arntson with new baseball field
Kids at Oregon Trail Elementary gathered on Thursday evening for the Sept. 19 ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Jake Arntson Memorial Baseball Field.
This field honors the life of first-grader Jake Arntson, who died on Dec. 31, 2012, in a tragic car accident.
His parents Tracy and John Arntson, who is a teacher and baseball coach at Clackamas High School, and many others in the community, helped to make this project a success. Members of the local commuity joined parents and teachers for a work party to get the field ready.
