Alton Middle School will celebrate its new baseball field on Saturday, Aug. 23 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 8:30 am.
Funded through a grant from Major League Baseball, the field was constructed during the 2013-14 school year and is now ready for play. Coach Brett Huff is inviting staff, parents, and community members to join the team for the ribbon cutting at 8:30 followed by both 8th grade (9 a.m.) and 7th grade (11 a.m.) games against Wolf Branch Middle School.
The field is located at 2200 College Avenue on the upper field behind the Olin Building. Please note, due to the staging of the Labor Day parade, parking for the baseball event is recommended behind the Annex and the Olin buildings.
