Renovations[edit]

In the 1990s and 2000s, the facility underwent several renovations. In 1990, a new, wooden outfield wall was constructed. In 1991, new dugouts were added, foul territory fencing was replaced, and fencing was built around the bullpens. In 2002 and 2003, 70-foot sunken dugouts with fencing were constructed. In 2004, the warning track was resurfaced. In 2006, a new electronic scoreboard, located beyond the right center field fence, was installed. In 2010, the Quinn Family Grandstand, which includes 400 chairback seats and a press box, was completed.[1]
