Sanders Stadium - can't wait
They are replacing the University of Oregon softball facility. Howe Field, there since the mid '30s. Time for it to go; no question. They're building on the same site. They started knocking it down after their last game. The goal was to be able to open the next season in the new digs. Seems unlikely, but I think they're going to make it.
They have a construction camera on their website. It's been fun to see it go up. I'm including a view I took from it today.
We're looking at some trips, some associated with Dennis' retirement. It won't be all at once, the stop working thing. It will go part time first. But we kind of want to make a victory lap in April though he won't completely be done.
Let's go down and see some games at the new stadium! Maybe the UCLA series in late April. We want to see the new stadium. Maybe the asst coach will get us on the pass list. If there is a pass list.
It's looking good, they already have the outfield grass in. A real stadium for the Ducks at last.
Can you believe it's been 12 years since Susanna started playing there. Ancient History!
