COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. -- There's some new funding for Doubleday Field in Cooperstown.
Assemblyman Bill Magee announced he's secured a $1 million state grant for the project.
That money, along with a $3 million grant received last summer will be used to upgrade the quality, accessibility, and safety of the stadium.
The field opened in 1920 and has grown into a nearly 9,000 seat stadium.
Magee says the renovations will strengthen baseball's roots and legacy in Central New York.
