Cleveland's League Park to get $5 million renovation

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Cleveland is finally set to restore League Park, at least two decades after city officials first discussed it. Mayor Frank Jackson's administration has committed $5 million to complete the first phase of the project, which is expected to be completed in 2012. That will include restoration of the ticket house and bleacher wall (in photo), which are still standing, and re-construction of the ball diamond.

See the story in the Plain Dealer.
