Baseball fans won’t have to brown bag it to the Union High School games after all.
The board of education Wednesday voted 6-0 to spend up to $125,000 on a concession stand at the new baseball/softball field at the high school.
Board member Karen Tucker was absent.
The 1,000-square-foot concession stand and restroom facility will be built by Union maintenance staff, which will cut the cost dramatically from a bid of about $250,000 ATG Sports had submitted a proposal in August.
The building will be a frame construction with a brick veneer that will match the rest of the campus buildings and athletic facilities.
ATG is constructing the field, bleachers, MLB netting, backstop, foul poles, bullpen, removable pitcher’s mound, dugouts and drainage system.
The ball field project is expected to cost around $422,000.
Funding for the entire facility, including the concession building, will come from the district’s capital improvement fund.
The facility is expected to be completed by the spring season.
