The Motlow State Community College softball program has begun raising funds to build a 'Legacy Walk' at the Moore County campus facility in support of a three-stage planned upgrade that will significantly change the appearance of Lady Bucks Field, according to Scott Shasteen, athletic director at Motlow.
The project will include replacing the backstop from dugout to dugout, adding a 'green monster' type design to the left field fence area, and replacing the scoreboard.
To help raise funds to pay for the projects, the Motlow softball program has created a brick 'Legacy Walk', which will start near the new backstop and work its way toward the facility parking lot. Brick purchasers can honor softball alumni, former teams, businesses, industry, etc.
"We want to honor softball alumni and former coaches, as well as supporters of our program with this legacy walk," said Janice Morey, head softball coach at Motlow. "As a member of the alumni family, I cannot wait to see this project completed. When I walk along this legacy walk, I anticipate being able to visually see what a great tradition I am part of here at Motlow State.
"In advance, I want to thank all of our alumni, former players and coaches, instructors, staff members and business leaders who have supported our program in the past," added Morey. "With the purchase of a brick or bricks in this new legacy walk, those supporters can add their message and show their support in a way that will last for decades."
A website has been set up to show examples of brick purchasing options and to accept credit card purchases for the Motlow softball legacy walk: (www.brickmarkers.com/donors/mscc.html).
