Siena College partners to upgrade poor fields

I had heard from a few prospective student athletes that Siena College was lacking in the facility category - especially baseball and softball. Apparently Siena felt the same way and came up with a great Town/Gown solution to fix the problem.

By partnering with the City of Albany NY, the Saints will take over city fields, give them an upgrade and allow the city to share use during off seasons, breaks, etc. Siena avoids land purchase costs and foots the bill for new grass and turf fields. Albany gets someone else to upgrade and maintain and exisiting park that has been neglected. Both get use. Sounds good to me.
