MURRAY — With searing heat waves having sent temperatures soaring the past two weeks in the Murray-Calloway County area, precautions have had to be taken with local baseball/softball activities. 

Murray-Calloway County Parks Director Ryan Yates said adjustments have been made and will continue to be made for games at the Central Park Four-Plex and Chestnut Park. He said, each day, efforts are made to inform teams to be affected of forthcoming schedule changes, either by social media or direct contact, and usually the chosen method is simple.
