PRESS RELEASE – The Seacoast Mavericks of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League are nearing the end of their $50,000 plus upgrade to Bert George Field in Rochester, NH. Bert George Field will be the home of the Mavs franchise entered to play in the inaugural season of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) this summer. Opening day is June 9th.
In lieu of cash payments for the Mavericks five year lease, the organization has agreed to make capital improvements to Bert George Field over the length of the lease.
Last week new dug outs were built and currently the Mavs are having the entire infield playing surface redone. Besides the new dug outs, the field will also see upgrades to drainage, new infield sod and a clay based dirt, a re built pitchers mound, two new bull pen mounds on both the home and visitors sides of the field, and a new sound system. The project will be completed by April 28th as to not impact the Spaulding High School baseball team that calls Bert George Field home every spring.
Team owner and Rochester native Dave Hoyt expressed his pleasure with the process of the field improvements as well as how welcoming the City of Rochester has been, “I couldn’t be happier with what has gone on. Everyone in Rochester has been so helpful and accommodating so we can get our organization going and call Rochester our home.”
“The goal of these renovations was to create an atmosphere that the people of the Seacoast would enjoy when they come to our games. Our plan is to allow fans to sit on the field like they can do in the Cape (The Cape Cod League).”
