A Story about UIS and Athletics Facilities

Bank of Springfield ScoreboardBank of Springfield Scoreboard | The Difference a Gift Makes

When Chris Ramirez, coach of the nationally ranked UIS baseball team, came to UIS in 2013, the team had no place to play at UIS and instead played games at parks throughout Springfield. Today, the team has its own home field with a new synthetic turf and big plans to develop a premier baseball stadium with covered hitting and training facility, locker rooms and a clubhouse, restrooms and a concession area. According to Coach Ramirez, it all started with a gift from the Bank of Springfield for a scoreboard. A little support from a major booster, Ramirez said in an SJR article, and within a year the team had a home field.

That’s the difference a gift can make. More information on plans for the UIS Baseball Stadium.
