The Press Box


Once again using the Olmsted model, Steve Svolis designed one of the finest press box facilities in high school athletics. With school department funds and donated materials and money, a crew of volunteers tore down the old press box and built a new one to reflect the style and history of Crocker Field. Lenny Laakso designed the steel structure to hold the building, and Russ Coakley worked for weeks to help build this very unique and large press box. Russ and his employees were instrumental in creating this gem. Fran Capone not only donated the interior carpeting, walls, ceiling, paint, and the lettering of “Home of the Red Raiders” but also did a large part of the work.
