Frame Park Renovation
Summer baseball won’t be coming to Waukesha this season, but that doesn’t mean the Northwoods League has left town. The summer collegiate baseball league, who was forced to postpone plans for a team housed in Frame Park, has assumed field maintenance duties as a sign of good faith, according to the Waukesha Freeman.
Chad Bauer had planned to invest two million dollars into stadium improvements and have a team on the field this summer, according to The Freeman. However, the economic downturn curtailed Bauer’s plans, pushing back his goal for the season-opener to June 1, 2010, according to the Freeman. Bauer said that the league’s maintenance was intended to be a sign of commitment to putting a team in Waukesha, according to the Freeman.
There are still concerns from the neighborhood about traffic, litter and safety, according to the Freeman.
The Carroll University baseball team usually plays their home games at Frame Park. Head coach Jason Kosanke has expressed support for the league, and was especially optimistic about the effects improvements to the facility could have upon recruiting.
