LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Spencer County Little League whose fields were trashed by flood water will celebrate opening day on May 9.

It was supposed to open last weekend, but flooding caused major problems with the ball fields and adjacent structures. Corn was piled up in the dugouts and stuck to the fence. A large picnic table had even been carried into one of the fences, which were falling down all over the place.

The current was so strong that it brought down a fence onto the new batting cages they're building and moved a picnic table more than 50 yards. One bench, which was supposed to be in a dugout, ended up on the other side of the diamond.

The damage has been estimated at $60,000.
