Mid-January snowfalls are exceptionally good at making some reminisce over warmer weather. For two baseball teams, the sooner the snow melts, the more clear the future of their upcoming seasons will become.
The Auburn High School and Cayuga Community College baseball teams both call Falcon Park their home turf. But the turf is why they’re concerned — it hasn’t been installed yet.
Falcon Park, also the abode to the Single-A Auburn Doubledays, began its $2 million synthetic turf installment project in October, nearly three months after the plan to transform the facility was first introduced.
In November, Auburn Superintendent of Public Works Mike Talbot said the project was still aligned with its anticipated timeline to be ready for spring play by the college and high school teams, despite some early snowfalls. Now in January, Talbot has confirmed that the park’s renovations have been delayed and the teams won’t be able to play there in the spring as planned.
