Paul Steinbach Headshot

Marshall University may be forced to make an $8 million investment in its new baseball stadium before construction can even begin.

As reported by Chuck Landon of The Charleston Gazette-MailMarshall paid the city of Huntington $460,000 for the property before it was discovered the site was below the flood plain. That meant purchasing truckloads of dirt to raise the entire field by 2 feet.

The original soil also had to be tested to make sure it wasn’t contaminated. Old water and gas pipes were discovered underground and will have to be removed.
