New wall at Suplizio Field to improve player safety

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — The Junior College World Series Committee installed a new outfield wall at Suplizio Field to improve player safety.

JUCO officials say the previous wooden outfield wall was installed in 2010. The new outfield wall is a chain link fence with six inches of padding. JUCO Tournament Chairman Jamie Hamilton told WesternSlopeNow the project cost $240,000.

The JUCO Committee fundraised part of the $240,000 and the other part was provided by the Parks Improvement Advisory Board.

The new outfield wall was installed earlier this May.
