Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a young man I look back to my younger years, growing up playing baseball. I remember dreaming of bigger better stages to compete and display my abilities in the sport. I came from programs that did not have winning traditions, in fact they could be considered among the worst programs over the past 10 years in southern California. What got me here where I am today is my ability to never...

Sports complex faces rough road: Timing of construction projects puts the squeeze on athletes, MSS program

Jason D. Cox Staff Writer The University of La Verne plans to build new athletics facilities on its Campus West property, located south of Arrow Highway and west of Wheeler Avenue, no later than Dec. 31, 2013.

Based on their past experiences,... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I couldn’t agree more with the editorial comments opposing the removal of Ben Hines Field for a parking lot (“Field of broken dreams,” April 22). Many family members, players, parents and fans literally carried rocks and other important tasks of that area to make the present field that has existed for more than 40 years. This will make ULV the only SCIAC college without a field on...

Field of broken dreams

Ben Hines Field is slated to be torn down at the end of the baseball season in May to make room for a new parking lot. The University finds it necessary to build the lot to go along with the new dorms that are to be finished by fall 2012. When making plans for the new lot, ULV seems to have forgotten to take into consideration that multiple teams play on the baseball field: men’s and women’s soccer...
