TIM MOELLERING FIELD The Tim Moellering Field, on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Derby Street, will open to the public Saturday, Sept. 21, at 11 a.m. Celebrate the return of baseball and additional practice fields to Berkeley: there will be a few short speeches, refreshments and a softball game. The field can accommodate all field sports (there’s also a basketball court) and features Berkeley High’s first regulation baseball field, where attendees can enjoy pick-up baseball games and hotdogs.) Construction on the field, named after a Berkeley High teacher and coach who died in 2011, began more than a year ago. The field is designed for use by the athletics programs at Berkeley High and Berkeley Tech and there will be times when the general public may be able to use it.
