Bids have been sent out for a new synthetic athletic field which will take the place of the M90 parking lot between Bryson and Elm which would be north of the WATTS across the bridge by the Lyden and Cafaro Houses. It will be named Cafaro Field. Then the Tennis Courts are being torn out and a new asphalt parking lot will go in extending the whole way from Elm to the east side stands of Stambaugh. A brand new indoor tennis center will be built on W Scott St next to the existing parking lot between W Scott and Grant street by where the soccer and softball stadium are now. It will have 6 indoor courts, locker rooms, bleachers, restrooms.

Great info Chief. I heard about the Cafaro request at the same time Farmer's Bank submitted. I still do not understand though Eastwood Field is a nice complex, but I do understand that the Scrappers are leaving & the Mall is expanding. Has anyone heard of a new location or are they leaving the valley? Does Cafaro still own the Eastwood Mall?

Thanks,
Dan

I'm not sure I understand ? Scrappers are not leaving Eastwood. Neither are YSU baseball. Scrappers just signed a new contract to stay and they are upgrading the stadium this summer. This field being built on campus is just a synthetic grass field, like a football practice field. It will be used for inter murals and other events. No baseball stadium.

Too bad, all sports should be played on campus.
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

They've looked into turning Harrison Field into a baseball stadium but not enough space.

According to the article, it is supposed to be finished in Mid-August 2019. Did you guys have inside information that it is to be finished in 2018 instead?

Sorry, yes that's what I meant. Would be remarkable to finish in 2.5 months lol. Not sure if they'll have construction going during football season or not.

Glad they are getting started!  Will be great addition to Stambaugh.  Now they can look at bathrooms, club seating etc. going forward.

Not sure if it's been mentioned but the plaza outside Beeghly Center is getting renovated as well this summer.

Pretty sure I'm at least among the oldest people on this site, but for those that go back at least a few decades the changes on the campus are remarkable.  EVERYTHING is better than I remember! (with the exception of the parking deck, which is the same crappy facility it has been for MANY years!)  I started in what looked more like an abandoned military installation set in a slum.  We now have a 1st rate university that actually helps with recruiting, not a barrier to be overcome!  If you've read my posts before, you know I think JT is simply great as University President, but many of the campus projects to which I refer had many sponsors and benefactors outside of Tressel.  IMO, ALL associated with YSU over the last 50 years have much to be proud of!
