Provo in Utah County, Utah — The American Mountains (Southwest)
While serving as tournament chairman, Jack spent countless hours contacting local businesses for donations to renovate the facility. This effort resulted in the construction of a new backstop, outfield fencing, dugouts, a scoreboard, and concessions stand with announcers booth above. At the time, it was considered one of the best little league or youth ballparks in the west.
Craghead Field remained in use until a new youth baseball fourplex was built at Fort Utah Park in 1994. The Jack Craghead family felt that this splash pool addition would be an excellent use as a continued recreational site for the youth of today and the future.
Splash Pool dedicated June 6, 2005.
