Letter: Dick Grounds Field is supposed to be Dick Grounds Field
This is in regards to the Nov. 25 letter from Chuck Cook regarding the naming of Dick Grounds Field.
Chuck’s letter detailed Dick Grounds’ exceptional high school career as a 4-sport student athlete and how Dick was a leader on teams that won conference championships in both football and basketball.
What Chuck’s letter failed to mention was that Dick Grounds, descendent of one of Mohave County’s first pioneer ranchers, died of cancer within a year of his high school graduation.
The old Mohave County Union High is now Lee Williams High School. Dick Grounds Field should remain Dick Grounds Field.
