Jim Ruppert, SJ-R sports editor, complimented the LLCC baseball fieldin the April 28 edition: “In my seemingly fruitless quest for the ultimate baseball park experience in Springfield, I have come upon what I have now deemed the best place for baseball in the city: Lincoln Land Community College’s Claude Kracik Field. The home of the Loggers has everything a local ballpark needs: the playing surface is well groomed and no longer holds water, the dugouts can accommodate both teams, there’s a place to park that’s safe, there’s a place to sit and watch, there’s a really good concession stand, there’s a terrific press box and the scenery is pretty nice too. They play good baseball at Kracik Field, too…”
