Baseball field improvements coming
April 05, 2013
Cornell College is moving forward with its plans to renovate the baseball field, John Cochrane reported to the Mount Vernon School Board last week.
Cochrane is the athletics director at Cornell, and is a school board member. The Mount Vernon School District shares the baseball field with Cornell.
Grants have been applied for that will, if received, cover approximately half of the $210,000 estimated cost of the work.
Cochrane told the school board that Cornell will expect the district to cover half the cost of the renovations.
He hopes that they will break ground the second week in July, allowing for the summer high school baseball season to finish before work begins.
