Reminiscing and talking old times were all part of it Sunday as the Robert "Bob" Patterson Babe Ruth Field was dedicated.
Patterson, the city's long-time Recreation Department director until his retirement, was honored for his efforts over the years. Those efforts included both on-duty and off-duty work on the city's ballfields.
Fourth Ward Councilman Robert George represented the city and presented a plaque to Patterson to start the ceremony.
