Drone13 catches Macon Bacon home field improvements during opening week

As players took the field for opening week practice, the #Drone13 team found some impressive improvements at historic Luther Williams Field

MACON, Ga. — Macon's historic Luther Williams Field has hosted baseball since 1929. The park's historic charm has drawn its share of interest from Hollywood in movies like "42" and "Trouble With The Curve."

The Macon Bacon have made several new additions during the off-season to make a day at the ballpark even more enjoyable for fans.

The team is part of the wooden bat Coastal Plain League, which brings in talented college players from across the nation. 

There are also some standouts from the state of Georgia on the team. The level of play is compared to Single-A minor league baseball.

The team recently revealed a beefed up -- or should it be porked up? -- menu with six bacon-themed items.
