COOPERSTOWN – Rehabbed gymnasiums, new LED lighting, enhanced security and enhanced draining on the “embarrassment” baseball field were all part of the $5 million Capital Project presented tonight at a forum by the Cooperstown Central school board.

“The baseball field’s infield has been a real source of embarrassment and hard to maintain,” said Superintendent William Crankshaw.  “We are doing a complete refurbishment of the soil and grass.”
