After two tornadoes touched down in Mt. Juliet in 2013, the Mount Juliet Little League Ball Park was severely damaged. The tornadoes touched down as part of a greater tornado outbreak on January 30, 2013 that swept through Middle Tennessee and caused 1 reported death and at least 3 injuries according to Weather.gov. The outbreak saw over 23 tornadoes occur throughout Tennessee over the period of two days.
The tornado that blew through Mt. Juliet, Wilson County, touched down on Glenwood Drive and proceeded in a east-northeast direction for 6.4 miles over a period of seven minutes. The heaviest damage occurred in the commercial district near Lebanon Road and Mount Juliet Road.
The damage around the Mount Juliet Ball Park included damaged buildings, fallen power lines, destroyed fences, and felled trees.
Goddard Construction stepped in to help clean up and rebuild the field after the storm. Our contractors donated their time to help build new dugouts on the ballfields for players, as well as other construction repairs. We also donated building materials to the park so we could make sure the 2013 little league season could happen as planned.
