Nittany Lion Softball to Get New Stadium

Today, Penn State Athletics announced that they received a $500,000 donation from William and Lee Beard to help create a new facility for Nittany Lion Softball.

The softball team has long languished in one of the worst facilities on campus, which is unfortunate, considering that Old State has some of the finest athletics facilities in the country. With this new pledge from the Beard family to create a new facility (to be named Beard Field in their honor), the Penn State softball team will have a new facility to help entice top-level recruits into joining the Nittany Lions.

The facility will include “more than 1,000 permanent seats as well as clubhouses, coaches’ offices, locker rooms, a training room, media center and outdoor and indoor training areas.” The stadium is scheduled to start construction this Spring and will be completed by the start of the 2011 season. Construction costs are estimated at $10.2 million.

As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
