On April 25, dozens of former Edgewood ISD baseball players and their families attended the re-dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the renovated Edgewood Baseball Field.
Baseball players from the last 60 years who played at Edgewood, Kennedy, and Memorial high schools joined current players, District Administration, and community members at the ceremony.
The baseball field, at the corner of Lance and 36th streets, has undergone extensive renovation and improvements:
New fencing, new windscreens, new bleachers, new dugouts, new press box, new covered batting tunnels, new lights, new bases, new bleacher awning, infield redone, pitcher’s mound redone, new scoreboard, new flag poles, new foul poles, parking area redone, new parking area lights.
The facility also will have a concession stand, restrooms, public address system, a redone playing surface, perimeter fencing, bullpen, irrigation system, and ticket booth.
Edgewood ISD created a commemorative medallion and baseball cap for the event, which were given to former baseball players who submitted a player profile form available on the District’s web site.
The re-dedication ceremony was followed by the season-ending baseball game between Kennedy and Memorial high schools.
