Baseball facility upgrades start
Co-Lin has begun phase one of facility upgrades at its Sullivan Baseball Field.
The initial upgrades have several important components, including new dugouts, infield turf, field and major drainage work, new bull pens, a new backstop, new fencing, and new Musco Lighting.
“We are very excited to start phase one of upgrades to Sullivan Field,” Co-Lin Athletic Director Bryan Nobile says. “This is something that many, many people have worked hard on behind the scenes for quite some time. These upgrades are much needed, and we are looking forward to having our guys compete on a brand-new field.”
The contract was awarded to local contractor Paul Jackson & Sons. Demolition is currently underway, with facility upgrades to be completed in early spring of 2023.
“I believe the facility upgrades we’re making will allow us to attract high level baseball players,” says new head baseball coach Adam Chamblee. “Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our Board of Trustees and college administration. We’re extremely thankful that they’re making such exciting things happen for Co-Lin baseball.”
“The Co-Lin Board of Trustees is to be congratulated for its support in facility upgrades to propel the Wolf Pack baseball program into the next era,” says Co-Lin President Dr. Jane Hulon Sims.
Individuals, families, businesses, or groups are invited to purchase commemorative brick columns at Sullivan Baseball Field for $6,000 each. Other opportunities for naming are also available upon request and are subject to approval of the Copiah-Lincoln Community College Board of Trustees.
