The public is invited to attend an announcement involving the San Diego Padres, the city of El Centro, the El Centro Elementary School District and El Centro Little League regarding the establishment of Little Padres Parks at Frazier and Sunflower fields.
El Centro Mayor Cheryl Walker said the fields will be the first ones outside of San Diego County and Tijuana.
"This is for the public," Walker said. "This is a celebration for our entire community."
The event is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday at Frazier Park, near McKinley and Kennedy schools, on Sixth Street in northeast El Centro.
The scope of work varies from field to field, according to background information provided by the Padres. All Little Padres Parks share three common features: palm trees, a manual scoreboard and a blue-coated outfield fence with an orange top-rail.
Walker said the Padres will also plant new grass and ensure the fields are of the proper size.
