FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.nbc33.com) – We brought you a sad story yesterday about the fields over at Georgetown Little League where thieves cut holes in fencing to steal copper wires. Well today we have a happy update to share.

Arrow Fence has volunteered their time and services to repair the ballpark’s fences free of charge. In all, there were five spots where thieves cut the fences and now all five need to be replaced.

But as far as Arrow Fence is concerned, it’s just a way for them to say thanks.

"We are doing this free of charge, a donation,” says Jeff Bowser, President of Arrow Fence. “It's kind of a payback to the community. I live out this way, I drive by this location probably 2 or 3 times a day and I just wanted to help them out.”

The project was slated to last all day. Bowser says if this was a commercial project it would cost more than $1000.
