Highlights of the Stadium and Turf Field Dedication on September 24, Teacher Feature and more.
Two of Louisville’s leading philanthropists have made a leadership-level donation to cover the cost of a new turf field and its maintenance over the next several years. Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn’s donation was announced on July 27.
Lots of changes are popping up at Pat Crawford Stadium. The new entry plaza is nearing completion, with commemorative donor tile and brick installation nearly complete.
After planning and funding obstacles delayed our ambitious project of improving our entrance and buildings in our Ballard Stadium and our baseball facility, construction is now well underway.
