    CHICAGO – Evidence that construction has begun on Curtis Granderson Stadium is abundantly clear with the removal of almost all existing structures, including both dugouts, grandstands and the press box.  Just one week in to the construction timetable, crews will now begin leveling and laying the foundation for the new multi-million dollar structure.  Completion is scheduled for the spring of 2014.

    Last Tuesday, UIC held a groundbreaking ceremony in which hundreds of invited guests attended.  Granderson announced his pledge for the stadium on Feb. 6, 2013 at his UIC #28 jersey retirement event and the University Board of Trustees gave the project a green light with their official approval on May 30.

    Curtis Granderson Stadium will not only be home for UIC baseball, but more importantly serve as the anchor for the Curtis Granderson Stadium Project, a youth initiative designed to aid children of Chicago.  Partnerships with Major League Baseball, the Chicago Public Schools and numerous youth league organizations have been established to provide youngsters with an opportunity to compete at Curtis Granderson Stadium and the adjoining athletic fields.
