While we're on the topic of new stadiums, they've decided to make a significant change at Goss Stadium: Turf will be installed in the infield. We've had some pre- -vious discussions, but, alas, the Athletic Department has chosen turf.
This won't sit easy with many fans, but I think that when you look at it, its something we had to do. I'm a big fan of baseball on grass and dirt, but the rainy weather in the Northwest can make finding time to practice hard, let alone maintenance in the bad weather. This will free up more time to practice, as well as help to prevent rain-outs, although we have not had many in resent history.
We've also added a new scoreboard to Goss Stadium this off-season.
