Granderson visits site of future baseball stadium
Curtis Granderson — UIC alumnus, former Flames baseball standout and current New York Yankees centerfielder — and Flames baseball coach Mike Dee paid a visit Tuesday to the site of Granderson’s namesake project, a new UIC baseball stadium.
Granderson donated funds for the sports facility, which will be home for the UIC team and a youth initiative in partnership with Major League Baseball, Chicago Public Schools and area organizations.
Granderson was on campus this week to film a video promoting his Grand Kids Youth Academy at UIC.
“UIC is my second home and I love getting a chance to be here as often as I can,” he said.
