LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Not even a month into a new season with new ballpark amenities, the Loggers want to figure out what's next for the Lumberyard.
The team wants to split the cost of a study with the city of La Crosse for some new additions to Copeland Park. They are looking at adding permanent restrooms, additional concession areas, and a 400 seat grandstand on the left field line.
"We've got a beautiful brand new playing surface, brand new video board, brand new atmosphere," said Loggers General Manager Chris Goodell. "There's just some other amenities they'd like to continue to improve one including those restrooms and concession offerings and continue to make this one of the best places in the Midwest to play baseball and host baseball fans."
A city committee is taking up the proposal at a meeting Thursday. The agenda estimates the cost to be more than $20,000.
