BLOOMINGTON – The school year has culminated at Illinois Wesleyan University, but the athletic department is gearing up for a busy summer.
Renovations are set to begin at the Titan’s softball field, Inspiration Field, as the school prepares to host the 2025 Softball National Championships.
“Phase one of two of the renovations of our softball field at Carol Willis Park, will be putting in a new turf infield this summer starting at the end of June, and a brand new video scoreboard will be put in this year,” said IWU Athletic Director Mike Wagner.
Phase two of the softball renovation will be carried out next summer according to Wagner.
Also getting some maintenance this summer at Illinois Wesleyan is the Shirk Center, as the facility will be switching to LED lighting to be more energy efficient.
