Engraved pavers available for new baseball complex

Katzy Randall Katzy Randall An exciting transition is taking place currently at the Tiger Baseball Complex.

As many of you have noticed, much-needed improvements are under way. Part of the construction plan will provide a plaza area that will consist of brick pavers.

These pavers will also be used on the walkway leading into the baseball complex.

Here is your opportunity to permanently mark your support for Tiger Athletics and the Tiger Baseball Program.

The brick pavers are for sale for individuals to have their name or company engraved on your own personalized brick.

All funds received through the purchase of pavers will go toward future baseball projects in our attempt to make the Tiger Baseball Complex one of the top 3A facilities in the state.

The bricks come in two options. The first option is a (4 in. x 8 in.) brick that will hold approximately 4 lines of engraving with each line containing 15 characters. This option will require a $100 donation.
