Nashville, Tennessee (WTVF) —A strong wind twisted metal and blew a fence at Wilson Central High School on Tuesday morning.
The school baseball stadium was hit by something that looked like a straight wind or a tornado. The damage occurred before 6:45 am and no one witnessed what had happened.
However, baseball coach Anthony Ford witnessed the damage shortly thereafter.
“Of course there are foul poles with bent scoreboards,” Ford said. “There was a band trailer near the parking lot that was actually flipped over on the scoreboard, and the scoreboard lay on the field. An outfield fence of about 600 feet, including batters outside the wall. At the outfield base. Everything should be fine towards you. “
Ford said it was unclear how much the damage would cost the school. Other nearby scoreboards also twisted and collapsed.
Due to the weather, the senior night at school has been postponed. Baseball pitcher Trystan Lewis said he was sad about the damage because Tuesday was probably the last night they played on the field.
“It’s tough, especially because there wasn’t a season last year, so it was canceled at COVID. That’s it. But just power it up and you’ll do what you can,” Lewis said.
Ford said it would try to play another field on Wednesday.
