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.
