The new net backstop supported by wooden poles at the main softball diamond at Riverside Park. The baseball backstop will be replaced when time and weather allows.

An effort to install new net backstops at softball and baseball diamonds at Riverside Park illustrates the value of working together, Iola Mayor Jon Wells said.

Wells is also a member of the Iola Elks Lodge 569, which has a goal of keeping children active and healthy, he said.

As such, the local group gave $1,500 for the backstops at the park.
