Baseball field to get turf in 2012[]

  • Fox Chapel OKs artificial turf for baseball field [1]
August 23, 2011, By Chris ChecchioThe Fox Chapel school board unanimously approved the preparation and installation of artificial turf for the high school baseball field.

A construction bid was awarded to Shawsportexe for more than $759,000 through funding from the Education Institutional Cooperative Purchasing Organization. But a large portion of money for the project will come through an $800,000 donation to the district made by an anonymous individual.

Additional revenue for the turf installation also derived from the efforts of baseball, football, and Fox Chapel Hall of Fame boosters.

Other students involved in extracurricular programs will utilize the field, including girls soccer, girls and boys lacrosse, the high school band, and students in physical education classes.
