Baseball Facility Renamed Kendrick Family Ballpark


Following a generous donation to West Virginia University, the West Virginia Black Bears are proud to announce the renaming of Monongalia County Ballpark in honor of the Kendrick Family.

From the official press release from WVU's Athletic Communications:

The West Virginia University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, in conjunction with the WVU Foundation, has announced a generous gift from Ken Kendrick, Arizona Diamondbacks owner and WVU alumnus, to support the WVU Baseball program. The gift includes the renaming of Monongalia County Ballpark as the facility now will be known as Kendrick Family Ballpark at the Monongalia County Baseball Complex.


"Having this level of support from such a distinguished alumnus benefits the entire community," said General Manager Leighann Sainato. "It's through the generosity of those like Mr. Kendrick and his family that baseball continues to grow in Morgantown. We look forward to our Opening Day at Kendrick Family Ballpark."

A dedication ceremony to honor the Kendrick family will be announced at a later time, per the university's press release.
