  1. The CSRA has no facilities for hosting Georgia high school playoff games. Augusta University could upgrade the baseball and softball sites and the area (and university) could reap the benefits of thousands of dollars of traveling fans.
    Georgia Southern, Valdosta State and others are enjoying these cash influxes yearly; why not Augusta?

  2. First, the city of Augusta wanted way too much to lease the Lake Olmstead to Augusta University and now someone else is developing that area so that is a no-go. We all know where the money has been spent the last 36 years and it hasn’t been on field sports. Christenberry does not need suites. Not enough attendance to justify the need. Instead, divert that money away to the other sports. The baseball players are changing in a garage with kayaks and no heat or AC. The softball team doesn’t even have that. There is no need for lights as who wants to play a baseball game in February at night? Can we say 30 degree games? The seasons typically start Feb 1. Those can wait, I promise. These phases are not aligned correctly to build winning programs. Phase 2 minus the lights needs to be of utmost priority! Ticket taking to generate income would also be nice and would help generate revenue for the other builds that needs to be in Phase 2. It is sad that the baseball and softball teams in at a division 2 NCAA University have less than many high schools do in our area! They don’t have a good fundraising branch there either. Tons of well-educated baseball and softball alumni who, I’m pretty sure, would donate $100 every year. There used to be a Dugout Club for baseball, but I have not heard about it in years. No kids want to come play here now when they can go to other schools in the state who have 1000x better facilities and amenities. “If you build it, they will come”.
