(Feb. 26, 2019) Avon, OH: The Lake Erie Crushers, presented by Mercy Health, have reached an agreement with the City of Avon and the Avon School District that will allow the Avon High School baseball team to use the field at no charge to the school district. The high school team will be allotted field time at Sprenger Health Care Stadium approximately twice a week from March 1st until the start of Crushers Spring Training which is generally the last week of April.
The agreement will go into effect this spring. The Crushers have already allotted 14 dates for the Avon Eagles to use the facility.
"We are looking forward to having the Avon High School team out to the park this spring and for the foreseeable future", stated Crushers Co-Owner Tom Kramig. "Coach Kirschner and the Players have been great to work with. We are excited to watch the Eagles play this season."
"We appreciate Mayor Jensen and City Council working with the Crushers organization to secure time for our teams to continue to play at Sprenger Health Care Stadium" commented Avon School Superintendent Mike Laub. "We look forward to the spring and appreciate this opportunity."
Avon Mayor Bryan Jensen added, "I am pleased and excited that the Avon High School baseball team will be able to play at Crushers Stadium at no cost to the school system. I want to thank Tom Kramig, the Crushers organization and Superintendent Mike Laub for their hard work which made this possible."
