The La Crosse Loggers (summer collegiate; Northwoods League) say they’re moving ahead on a planned million-dollar renovation to Copeland Park originally approved for the 2016 season.
On tap: a new ticket office, retail store, additional concessions and permanent restrooms. The ballpark’s entry plaza (shown above) will be significantly upgraded as well. From News8000:
“It’s going to have a dramatic facelift to the front entrance of Copeland Park when people start coming back out here by Opening Day 2017,” said [Loggers GM Chris] Goodell.
The new entryway to the stadium will also include exhibits from the La Crosse Area Baseball Hall of Fame.
Construction on the new entrance to the park is expected to begin in early October, with most of the larger parts of the project getting done before winter. The team hopes to have everything up and running for Opening Day nine months from now.
