Rev. Michael J. Bransfield, bishop of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, will be on Wheeling Jesuits’ campus to bless and dedicate Bishop Schmitt Field.
The new field is now the turf for the Cardinals and Wheeling Central Catholic High School.
Local benefactors made the field possible by giving two million dollars to WJU’s home field Advantage Campaign.
Plans for an LED scoreboard, rebuilding of the press box and other projects are all in the works for the new stadium.
The dedication will take place this Friday at 7 pm.
