Installation of artificial turf began this week at Falcon Park, home of the Auburn Doubledays minor league baseball team and now, the CCC Spartans as well. In October, the Cayuga Community College Board of Trustees unanimously approved an agreement that will allow the college to rent the field at Falcon Park from the city of Auburn for several of its men’s and women’s athletic teams.

The agreement stipulates that the city will be responsible for paying for and overseeing a project to install a turf field at Falcon Park, home of Auburn’s Minor League Baseball franchise, the Auburn Doubledays, and the college will be responsible for paying the city rent to use the facility, which will cover the cost the city will incur for the renovations and other operating costs. Over the life of the 20 year contract, the college will make around $6 million in payments to the city.
