Ford Motor Company officials announced Friday that they have closed three adjoining baseball fields on company property at the Twin Cities Assembly plant in St. Paul because of arsenic, copper and iron found in the underlying soil. A recent report indicates that Ford Motor Company’s assembly plant in St. Paul, built in 1923 and scheduled to close next year, contains more than 70 areas of potential contamination that need to be investigated and cleaned up.
