Cayuga Community College President Brian Durant found himself in front of county legislators for more than 20 minutes at the body's full meeting Tuesday night with part of that time discussing the new endeavor of a baseball team.
The Auburn City Council approved a resolution last week approving two agreements to lease the fields at Falcon Park and Casey Park for the upcoming baseball team and the college's current softball team. While Auburn Mayor Mike Quill called the agreements "a great partnership," legislators did not seem so enthused.
Legislator Michael Didio asked Durant about whether the college was considering adding student housing, to which Durant said no. He added that he did not believe a team of 25 to 30 student athletes would be a factor.
