The Milwaukee School of Engineering announced plans this month to build a $2.9 million softball stadium on its downtown Milwaukee campus for its NCAA Division III women’s softball team.
Part of a larger effort to expand its athletic facilities, the stadium will be built at the MSOE Athletic Field site northeast of Milwaukee and State streets and will feature seating for 250 spectators, a natural grass field, dugouts for each team, and a single-lane batting cage and bullpens on each side of the field. A building behind home plate will include a press box, ticket window and concessions.
The project is being funded by a gift from Kathy Ruehlow, Matthew and Jodi Burow and Milwaukee-based Fiduciary Management Inc. Ruehlow and the Burows are MSOE alumni. Ruehlow and Matthew Burow are also MSOE regents.
