Changes to the renovation plan at venerable Cheney Stadium, home of the Tacoma Rainiers (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) are pushing back the completion date, but construction manager Mortenson says work should be completed in plenty of time for the season opener.
The renovation, which began right after the regular season and forced the Rainiers to spend playoffs on the road, includes a redesigned, covered concourse, a right-field grass berm with an attached children’s play area, new bleachers beyond the left-field wall, 300 club seats behind home plate, a 5,000-square-foot club/restaurant, and 16 luxury suites.
Construction was slated to end in the middle of March, but changes requested by the city and the Rainiers are forcing that date back to April 1 — still in plenty of time for the ballpark to open for the Pacific Coast League season.
