Plans to honor a local baseball great with the naming of the Farley, Iowa, diamond feels like a grand slam for a man who has made a broad contribution to the area community, both on and off the field.

Paul Scherrman, the charter president of the Eastern Iowa Hawkeye League semi-pro circuit and a member of Dubuque County Baseball Hall of Fame, will have yet another honor bestowed upon him this summer. The Farley Park Board last week announced plans to name the baseball diamond at the facility Paul Scherrman Field in recognition of his lifelong dedication to the sport and the Farley community.
