SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Folks gathered Saturday to honor a local community servant on South Bend’s west side.

Seabe Gavin Sr. Youth Baseball/Softball Field was inaugurated with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

The field is part of the martin Luther King Jr. Rec Center but has been neglected for the past few years.

A combination of city funds and donations made the improvements possible.

Seabe's son said he was humbled to have it named after his father.
“But just one person can pass a positive thought on to someone else and that whole process grows and when you do that you change the whole culture of the community, and that's what' we're doing, we're changing the culture of this community,” Seabe Gavin Jr. said.

“This field was overgrown with weeds,” South Bend Common Council member Henry Davis Jr. explained, “so it's a new day for us all so we're proud to say that this is a community asset.

Once the ribbon was cut, two softball teams were hitting the outfields for a warm up and game.
