Directions to the Sheldon Fields
Sheldon Fields are located right off of Route 9/Bridge Street. There is parking in one of the lots or on the grass of the Three County fairgrounds. Sheldon 3 [S3] is the softball field set farthest back from the road. Sheldon 4 [S4] is the last field on the left.

— Turn left off of Exit 19 (you'll be on Route 9 W)
— Go under the overpass
— The road narrows to a single lane, with a stoplight for turning left onto 91S
— Go through the stoplight, past some houses, immediately after, you'll see baseball/softball fields on your left. Turn left onto Old Ferry Rd (If you reach a cemetery, you've gone too far on Route 9.)
From Northampton center:
— Take Main Street (which becomes Route 9 East) out of town, towards (but not all the way to) 91 South
— You will pass the Post Office, Bridge Street School, and a cemetery
— After the Three County Fairgrounds, turn right onto Old Ferry Rd. (If you reach a stoplight or 91 S, you've gone too far on Route 9.)
