The College of Alameda baseball park was flooded with over 100,000 gallons of water over the weekend after vandals opened the main water valve and destroyed six sprinkler heads last weekend.
The vandalism took place some time between 9 p.m. Saturday, July 26, and 7 a.m. Sunday, July 27, on the eve of three important Alameda Babe Ruth baseball league games, according to the Alameda Babe Ruth senior league general manager Eric Schuler. The three games had to be cancelled.
