Renovated stadium now up to par with nation’s elite

During the first week of October 2005, the first of three phases of construction began on the newly christened Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

Now, a little more than three years later, renovations were finished in time for the 2008 season opener against Rutgers.

New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez, who initially signed a letter of intent to play at UM, donated $3.9 million towards the project.

Last season, permanent concession stands were finished in time for postseason play. Three floors have been recently completed behind the grand stand: the first houses the coaches’ locker room, clubhouse, merchandise center and weight room, while the second contains a conference room. The third has a press box with a suite on either side, each with a balcony.
