THE BRONX - All Hallows High School is scrambling once again to find a field to play its baseball games.

Principal Sean Sullivan says the NYC Parks Department has closed Heritage Field for two weeks, right at the tail-end of the season. The baseball team has only four games left, three of which were to be played at the field.

This marks the second-straight year the field has been closed.

A Parks Department spokesperson says the closure is part of annual maintenance performed in May and October to make sure the field remains intact and safe throughout the year. 

Luis Ramos, the team's catcher, says he hopes something can be worked out so he can finish his senior year on his home turf. 

Principal Sullivan says the school managed to find a field for Saturday's game in Queens. The last two games may be played at Concordia College in Westchester County.
