Thursday, Jan 31, 2019

The Wilmington Sharks baseball team is proposing renovations to Buck Hardee Field.

Matt Perry of Nationals Sports Services, the ownership group of the Sharks, sent details of the renovations to Amy Beatty, the director of community services for the City of Wilmington’s Parks and Recreation Department on Oct. 31, 2018.

Some of the proposed renovations include expanded seating capacity, lower dugouts closer to the field, a video board and replacing natural grass with artificial turf.

The Legion Stadium Commission is scheduled or meet on Jan. 30 when Perry is expected to discuss the proposed stadium renovations.

In the meeting, they plan to discuss options for the stadium, estimated cost and funding possibilities.
Parties involved are not expecting to ask for a tax increase to pay for the renovations.

The Sharks' lease for Buck Hardee Field expires Aug. 31, 2019.
