The Point Pleasant baseball team is just the latest program to make changes to its home venue, as the Big Blacks have added permanent seating behind their new backstop for the upcoming 2014 season. Point Pleasant — in cooperation with the PPHS Athletic Boosters — has added an all-brick backstop and new netting behind the home plate area, which should provide both stablility on the field and a better overall view for fans over the next few decades. The area behind the backstop also has 110 stadium chairs bolted down for fans to feel even closer to the action than ever before. As the season progresses, additional bleachers will be placed around the outside of the newly-remodeled backstop — which should provided anywhere from 200-250 seats for PPHS fans to sit while cheering on the team. The stadium chairs will also serve as a fundraiser of sorts for the baseball program, as each of the 110 chairs can be sponsored by anyone for $100 apiece. Sponsors will have a name plate engraved that will be placed on the back of each chair, and each sponsor will have a say in how the name plate reads. Each name plate can have a message that goes up to five lines, with 18 characters available on each line. Anyone interested in ordering a name plate may contact PPHS baseball coach Andrew Blain for more inofrmation. (Bryan Walters/photos)
