Generals pitch Jackson on ballpark improvements

Jackson GeneralsFlush off a successful 2012 that saw a significant uptick in attendance, the Jackson Generals (Class AA; Southern League) are asking the city to spend money on ballpark improvements.

The improvements included more points of sale in the concession area, an upgraded lighting system — something practically mandated by Minor League Baseball — and more ticket booths. Last year the Generals drew the second-highest number of fans in a season since 2004, and the increased number of fans definitely put some stress on ballpark operations, according to GM Jason Compton

The total cost of improvements: around $200,000.
