PARADISE, Calif. -- Baseball season is near and Paradise Little League is doing everything in its power to bring its players back home. 

Just last week Paradise Little League's home field was destroyed. There was weeds, broken bleachers, fences, backstops and more. 

But this week the community rallied together to clean up and fix up the fields and its surrounding areas. 

"When you're trying to rebuild the community and your kids are hurting, the community is not going to heal," said PLL Board Member Elizabeth Brewster. "They literally are our future and we need to give them as many normal experiences as possible so they know what it's like to be a kid and the [Camp] Fire isn't the only thing they have to takeaway from their childhood."

February 7 will be the last day to volunteer to renovate the field. Volunteers will be out there from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All skill sets and ages can volunteer. PLL is also accepting donations. 

PLL says renovations have cost them up to $7,000. 

The League will have a community BBQ at Egleson Field on February 8 from 12-4 p.m. It will have a baseball clinic and a equipment giveaway for players.
