3rd-Base Bleachers Go

A team from Upstate Companies, Mount Upton, is completing its first week demolishing the concrete third-base bleachers at Cooperstown’s historic Doubleday Field, the first step in a $5.8 million renovation. The contract specifies 60 days, but Jim Brust, Delaware Engineering’s inspector at the scene, expects the job may be done before that. In all, 10,000 yards of concrete are being removed. He said the pile of cement probably reached its peak this afternoon, as the demolition waste will be trucked away to make way for modern bleachers and a two-story building that will include restrooms, locker rooms, an office for Doublefield Field Manager Quinton Hasak, topped by a picnic pavilion. The grandstand will also be repaired, repainted and renovated, but with the idea of maintain its historic character. (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
