Now that the official groundbreaking ceremony is complete, the members of the inaugural Cayuga Spartans baseball team are ready to play two.
Dozens of people were on hand Monday afternoon as officials from Cayuga Community College, Cayuga County and the City of Auburn broke ground on the project that will replace the grass field with an all-season multi-sport turf surface.
Auburn native T.J. Gamba has returned home to coach the Spartans. He tells Finger Lakes News Radio being able to call Falcon Park home will be an excellent recruiting tool.
Ethan Blaisdell spent his high school years playing on the grass at Falcon Park with the Auburn Maroons.
Zach Legarratta calls Visalia, California home. He’s excited about stepping onto the field in the spring.
Even Coach Gamba is as anxious as his players to get the season underway.
The Spartans first home doubleheader is scheduled for April 2, when they host Columbia-Greene Community College.
