COMO —The Como baseball fields in Como, Texas were nominated in the Plant-A-Seed program sponsored by Kellogg’s Cereal to be renovated. The baseball fields located in downtown Como have not been maintained for some time and would certainly bring life and community back to the area.
In the last several months more than 3,400 fields were nominated to make the semi-finals which includes 100 fields for final voting. The first round of voting ended, and the Como Fields officially made the semi-finals. Of these 100 fields, only 30 will be set to be rebuilt. In order to be selected as one of the 30 fields, votes are needed now through May 31.
"There are several kids in the area who cannot afford the bigger communities programs and do not have the means to travel to those towns for practice and games," said Chad Bult, nominator of the project. "This field is in poor condition because it has not been maintained in over 10 years. It will bring back the local baseball program and allow the local kids to experience baseball again." To date the Como baseball fields have received 143 online votes.

In the semi-finals, participants must enter a birthdate and e-mail address and may only vote once per day. Only voters who are 18 years or older with a valid e-mail may vote in the semi-finals.
The public is invited and encouraged to show support by voting. Students at Como-Pickton have been involved in helping the cause. The seed planted for this project was started by Chad Bult on Feb. 12.
