GHS hoping to improve baseball fields

Published 4:00 am Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Pike County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Bazzell gave the board of education a heads-up Monday afternoon on a proposed Goshen Sports Boosters project that is gaining momentum.

Bazzell said the Sports Boosters are seeking ways to bring the GHS baseball field up to standards equal to those of the softball field.

“We have been talking with the Sports Boosters about the project,” Bazzell said. “I just wanted to make you [the board] aware that the Sports Boosters are working toward improving the baseball field before you hear it elsewhere.”
