New turf coming to Bay Memorial Stadium

Bay Memorial Stadium will be getting a face lift this summer as the Bay Village City Schools will be installing a new turf. The current turf is 11 years old and has lasted it’s life expectancy.  Renovations will begin on or around June 13 with a tentative completion date of July 14. The stadium, including the track and bleachers, will be closed to the public during construction. Funding is coming from a portion of cell phone tower revenue earmarked for this very purpose! The district receives "rent" for hosting the cell tower on school property.
