Springfield Thunder LbNA # 53931
|Placed Date||Jun 11 2010|
This box was placed in honor of the Springfield Thunder travel baseball league that was started out of this park.
From US 23 take exit 8 west. Turn right (North) onto McCord Avenue. Take McCord to Angola Rd and turn left (West). The entrance to the park is about a mile up on the left. Turn into Homecoming Park and follow the driveway toward the playground. There are other boxes planted here so check before you come. Park in the parking lot near the soccer fields then follow the path toward the baseball diamonds. Continue on through the diamonds toward the pond at the back of the park. As you come down the path, you will see a gazebo surrounded by a fence. Go to the right of the gazebo and count 5 fenceposts. Directly behind the 5th post, there is a large rock. To the left of the large rock there is a loose rock. Probably the only loose rock in the area. Beneath that rock, you will find what you seek.
