Phase 2 starts for Pulaski Red Raiders Field of Dreams
PULASKI (WLUK) -- Boys baseball and girls softball will play at a new complex come next spring.
A ceremony was held Thursday to celebrate phase two of the construction for the new complex.
The president of the Pulaski Community School District Board of Education says he is excited for what the new complex means for not only the students, but the entire community.
This facility has had a transformational effect on not just the school but the community. It has literally changed the landscape of the community. It is recognized and praised by those outside the district.
Michael Voelker said in a press release.
The second phase of construction will be broken down into two parts. The first includes two baseball fields and two softball fields at Pulaski High School, as well as a press box and storage area. Concession stands and bathrooms are also included in the first portion of phase two.
The second portion includes three tennis courts, more practice fields, and upgrades to the PCMS soccer complex.
The baseball/softball portion of Phase II is expected to cost $2.3 million with about $1.5 million yet to be raised. The remaining Phase II work will occur after the baseball/softball portion of Phase II is completed. The $3.2-million Phase I of the project was completed in September 2016.
