A year after unveiling $2.2 million in upgrades to Warner Park, the Madison Mallards (summer collegiate; Northwoods League) announced two more big ballpark changes for 2012.
The first big change to Warner Park: the addition of a berm in left field, past the administrative offices. The berm will be marketed to families and seat around 400. The existing fence will be torn down, with fill added.
The second big change: the popular Duck Blind in the right-field corner will be overhauled. After last year’s renovations part of the seating in that area became obstructed view; the seating will be revamped to provide better views of the action.
Third: two home-plate suites will be added to the second-level concourse area.
The changes will not affect the official capacity of 6,750.
This won’t be the end of the news regarding the Mallards in 2012: the team’s annual First Pitch event is tonight, and we hear some even bigger news is on the horizon.
