Expansion planned for Fox Cities Stadium

Stadium hosts WIAA state baseball tournament

The home of the state baseball tournament is getting a facelift that will add more seats and amenities at a cost of more than $5 million.

A multi-million dollar plan to improve Fox Cities Stadium was unveiled Thursday.

Grand Chute Town Board member Jim Pleuss told WLUK-TV improvements include a new concourse, additional club seats and suites, more restrooms and upgraded amenities carrying a price tag of more than $5 million.

Fox Cities Stadium was built in 1995 for $5 million, replacing the 55-year-old Goodland Field.

Besides minor league Timber Rattlers games, the stadium also hosts the WIAA state baseball tournament and the NCAA Division III College World Series every year, along with several events.

The Timber Rattlers, the Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau and the company that owns the stadium released details Thursday.
