The Monongalia County ballpark took another step in the right direction this afternoon when the Request for Proposal for the ballpark was put out for bid.

“There have been a lot of people involved, but it’s been an interesting and enjoyable process on my end because you get to see something developed from the ground up,” coach Randy Mazey says. “Obviously there are a lot of things that have to be done, but it’s becoming a reality with each day that passes.”

For Mazey, this is the first time he has been involved in the design of a new ballpark and appreciates the vision and expertise of Director of Athletics Oliver Luck. While serving as the Chief Executive Officer of the Houston Sports Authority, Luck oversaw the design of Minute Maid Park, Reliant Stadium and the Toyota Center.

“Oliver had the vision before I even came here. Traditionally he has been known as a great facility builder and I don’t see this being any different,” Mazey says. “With all of the people we have talked to and everything that is in place, this is going to be an outstanding facility.”
