The Jackson City Council authorized $433,610 for scoreboard and suite improvements to Pringles Park, the home of the Jackson Generals (Class AA; Southern League).
Pringles Park, built in 1997, hasn’t been seriously updated since the ballpark opened. That means the suites are in rough shape and the scoreboard close to nonfunctional.
The new spending from the city’s General Fund will update the suites, renovate the scoreboard and install a new kids’ play area, which has already attracted a sponsor. The actual cost of the ballpark improvements exceeds the $433,610 budgeted, but insurance will pick up part of the cost.
