Bates Field update

posted Jun 26, 2020, 5:15 PM by City High Alumni

The CHAA approved the release of remaining Stand Up for City High fundraised money to contribute toward improving the lighting at Bates Field.  We are pleased to support this endeavor as City's lighting has for many years been insufficient.  Perhaps not in 2020, but in years to come, they will help everyone see the games more clearly.
