SCRANTON -- Officials from the city and the University of Scranton gathered Thursday morning to break ground for improvements and upgrades to the South Side Athletics Campus.

The University of Scranton is investing about $14 million to upgrade the site off Broadway Street.

The facility will include NCAA regulation baseball and softball fields and a multipurpose field that meets NCAA standards for soccer, lacrosse, and field hockey.

Plans also include a community basketball court, a children’s play area, field house, bleacher seating and parking.

University officials announced the planned upgrade last fall.

    It always seems that the University of Scranton and the Dunmore YMCA are the only rich establishments in our area. Yet no one can afford to go their because of rising cost……..Talking about profit margin !

      To go “their?” Please explain what you are talking about “profit margin.” The article says nothing about finances.
