BDN reports on new UMaine softball facility

The Bangor Daily News reported that work has begun on the new University of Maine softball facility. The new softball field — which will have an artificial surface, lights, a two-lane hitting pavilion, bleacher seating for 500 with more than 200 chairback seats, new dugouts and a press box — is expected to be completed by March, according to University of Maine director of athletics Ken Ralph. “After it’s done, it will arguably be the best facility in the Northeast,” Ralph said.
