Many people don’t realize that Cyclone baseball Centenary University’s largest NCAA Division III team doesn’t have a home field near campus. A unique opportunity exists to provide our dedicated student-athletes with a state-of-the-art complex at the southeast corner of our Hackettstown campus.
The turf field is expected to be completed for the spring 2018 baseball season. We’ve already confirmed two generous challenge gifts to help make Centenary’s baseball complex a reality. Steve Somers has issued a $1 million challenge and the Reeves Foundation has issued a $250,000 challenge! Centenary will receive these funds, equal to $1.25 million, if we can raise the additional $750,000 toward the project’s estimated $2 million cost. Now, we need your help.
We’re Looking for Some MVPs
Step up to the plate! Your gift of $5, $10, $25, $50, or $100 will be combined with many others to help give the Cyclones a beautiful new home.
We’re also looking for some MVPs to consider the following naming opportunities:
We’re asking Cyclone fans, as well as Centenary alumni and donors, to Pitch In and support this terrific project. In addition to Cyclone baseball, the complex will be available for use by the surrounding community, including Hackettstown High School, and will significantly boost the University’s academic offerings, school spirit and the revenue opportunities.
It’s clear that this facility is a home run for Centenary, its students and the greater Hackettstown area. Download the attached PDF for more information about how the complex will benefit Centenary and the community. And then, please make your pledge to support our Cyclones.
