Cooper’s Town: Penn State’s Newest Student Section

Penn State’s baseball program is entering a new era, which began after new head coach Rob Cooper was tasked with bringing a winning culture to Penn State. A group of students and fans decided to help cultivate that change and formed Penn State baseball’s new student section, called “Cooper’s Town.”

Cooper’s Town will be located near the visiting dugout at Medlar Field and is steadily growing in numbers and support — 111 students bought season tickets and t-shirts yesterday.

“I think that the increase in student involvement is great,” said Cooper, whose namesake is the inspiration for the new section, along with the location of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. “These are a group of students who want to support Penn State baseball and help bring an atmosphere to the ballpark. I honestly believe that this is something that will become really special and be a staple of Penn State baseball.”

There will be table in the HUB all week for students to buy season baseball tickets for only $20. A new “Cooper’s Town” t-shirt is included with that deal. The coach hopes Cooper’s Town can become a ubiquitous entity, like football’s Nittanyville, basketball’s Nittany Nation, or soccer’s Park Avenue Army.

“I’ve seen all of the great student involvement in football with Nittanyville, and in basketball with Nittany Nation, and I believe that this could really develop into an organization that make that big of an impact,” Cooper said. “We plan on having barbecues and grill outs for Cooper’s Town to show them how much Penn State Baseball loves having them there, because their support is important to us. We really do appreciate what they are doing for this program’s fanbase, and I know that their presence will help us on the field.”

The new fan section plans to meet regularly throughout the season, as announced on its Twitter account (@CoopersTownPSU).

“I truly believe that we have something special building around this program, and I’m excited for what the future has to offer,” Cooper said.

Penn State baseball is off to a 3-6 star this season, although every game has been away. Cooper’s Town will make its first appearance at Medlar Field Tuesday, March 18 when Penn State takes on NYIT.
