Another baseball/softball comparison

Add C.D. Hylton High School in Virginia to the list of schools being investigated for facility disparities. Like numerous (over 40 according to WaPo) high schools in the United States, C.D. Hylton has a great baseball facility and a sub par softball facility.
The baseball field has: press box, concessions, and locker room. (Some of these amenities were funded by donations and booster club dollars.) Softball? No access to concessions; a port-o-potty; no dedicated press box; no locker room.
A complaint was filed in March by a parents of a softball player.
