Program to turn James Beckum Park into Major League diamond

MILWAUKEE -- As MVP of the 2011 All Star game, former Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder was given a unique opportunity to select an inner-city youth baseball field to turn into a "field of dreams," and Chevrolet's Diamonds and Dreams program would pay for it.

With the help of the Milwaukee County Parks System, the newly-named James Beckum Park on the north half of Carver Park on West Brown Street was chosen to receive a Major League diamond.
