Cubs donation to help Morgan Park HS fix up 100-year-old baseball field

CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs are teaming up with Morgan Park High School, breaking ground on a new baseball field at the South Side school.

The current field is 100 years old, and has dealt with issues like poor drainage.

With more than $87,000 from the Cubs, the school will be able not only to fix up the field, but also improve dugouts and get a new scoreboard. It's the kind of change that is already inspiring the Morgan Park High School community.

"To see the field like this and to see the things that are coming, the recognition for these kids, it's just astronomically wonderful," retired principal Dana Butler said.
