After reviewing the endowment status of each school, Roanoke College's $113,871,000 status of 2012 grabs my attention because their baseball program is the only program within the ODAC that does not have their own baseball facility and are constantly fighting battles to get a facility just to practice on.
The baseball staff is making great strides in turning this program around. Why cannot the admin take some money from the endowment and build their own softball/baseball complex or give the City of Salem some cash to upgrade Kiwanis field?
Is this fair to the student-athletes not having a dedicated field to call their own to practice on?
The parents of the baseball program as well as the softball program will need to unite to voice their concern to the administration.
