New sign put in today to replace the original one honoring Staff Sergeant Christopher S. Potts.
MIDDLETOWN -- This morning, a crew with Public Works was in the process of installing a new sign at Pottsy Field for the popular softball field at 648 West Main Road.
The original sign was installed in honor of Staff Sergeant Christopher S. Potts of Tiverton, who was killed on Oct. 3, 2004 while serving in Iraq with the 1st Battalion 103rd Field Artillery Regiment of the Army National Guard. Family and friends said the sign was a good way to honor Potts, who loved playing softball and enjoy the company of teammates at the town's West Main Road complex just south of the Middletown Public Library.
Santos Crane of Oliphant Lane provided the crane services, while the new sign was assembled and constructed by Liptak Signs & Graphic Designs of Middletown.
