Significant Improvements Continue at Historic Yale Field
Yale University today announced its approval for a project to repair and renovate the stadium roof at historic Yale Field.
“This is a major project that will preserve and improve Yale Field,” said Yale Athletic Director Tom Beckett. “This is one of the finest college baseball stadiums in the country and we want to keep it this way.”
According to Arch Currie, Yale Facilities director of project management, the work involves replacement of portions of roof deck that are rotted, replacement of the roof membrane, and caulking and resealing joints to prevent leakage at the concourse level.
Currie and the Yale Facilities office have worked with John Stuper, Yale baseball head coach, and Adam Schierholz, the Ravens’ general manager, on how to best plan the three-to-four month project without interfering with their respective uses of Yale Field. The project should be completed by mid-May of this year.
Said Jamie McAdam, of F. J. Dahill & Co., who was at work on the project, “It’s a fantastic facility and I’m thrilled to be able to work on it. I’m already looking forward to coming to a Ravens game this summer and enjoying the new refreshed look.”
Yale’s baseball team has home games scheduled through May 3, while the Ravens’ home opener is April 6th against New Britain at 4:05 p.m.
