Work will be conducted by Rijo Repairs and Maintenance, LLC under the supervision of the Department of Sports, Parks and Recreation (DSPR), which manages the ballpark. Repairs are set to be completed within 60 days with an option to renew the term for an additional 30 days if necessary. The contract is valued at $24,875.00

Mapp said he looks forward to working with DSPR to ensure repairs and improvements to all of the territory’s recreation areas, most of which suffered significant damage as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
