Field Offers Return Of NIC Baseball

A decade has passed since North Idaho College swung the collegiate bats, but if baseball supporters can build a $3 million field of dreams, the Cardinals, too, could land a home. "We've always been in support of baseball in the community," said Al Williams, NIC athletic director. But "it's kind of a moot point to try and have a baseball program without a field." That could change if hardball advocates, backed by a professional fundraiser, can solicit enough support to construct a roughly 1,000-seat stadium near Cherry Hill Park for the American Legion baseball program. The field would also meet collegiate field requirements/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Would you like to see a field-of-dreams baseball diamond built on Cherry Hill that would take care of American Legion Baseball -- and possibly resurrect the North Idaho College baseball team?
