The Penn State Board of Trustees Friday (May 13) approved final plans for a new baseball park at University Park to be shared by the Penn State baseball team and a minor-league team.
The new ballpark will be named Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. A gift by Anthony Lubrano in honor of Charles Medlar, a long-time Penn State head baseball coach, comprises a portion of the funds provided by Intercollegiate Athletics in the construction of the new facility.
The board also gave authorization to obtain bids and award contracts to construct the ballpark, with a total budget not to exceed 10 percent above $23.9 million. Funds provided by Intercollegiate Athletics, along with $12 million in Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program funds, which were pursued through the Centre County Industrial Development Authority and authorized by Gov. Ed Rendell, will be used to construct the project. The ownership group of the Altoona Curve, which will own the minor-league team to play at the ballpark, will lease use of the ballpark.
