WILMINGTON — The problem wasn’t that 3A West Brunswick was playing 4A Ashley, a high school with a bigger enrollment.
The problem was the enlarged outfield.
Ashley hit two balls that rolled to the fence in a 4-1 victory over West in the Mideastern Conference softball tournament semifinals May 6.
“This field is 220 to 225 feet,” West coach Joe Noble said. “On our field, we would have hit four home runs.”
