Stone saluted with dedication

April 16, 2007

Putney --  For his more than 20 years of volunteer service at the Southeast Dougherty Baseball Park, a field is named in honor of Dougherty County Commissioner Jack Stone.

The ball field at the Putney Ballpark will now be known as the Jack Stone Senior Ball field. Stone said having the field named after him is one of the best honors he has ever received for his years of public service.

"My kids played there, and now their kids are playing, so their Mama's and Daddy's I was watching them coming up when they were kids. So I know just about everybody out there," Stone said.

The field was re-named Saturday during Opening Day ceremonies.
