Centenary baseball team opens new field with a pair of comeback wins

HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – A pair of sixth inning rallies lifted the Centenary University baseball team to a doubleheader sweep of Lehman College Friday in the season opener at the University’s new baseball complex, “Our Diamond of Dreams,” located on the Hackettstown campus.

The Cyclones trailed 7-0 in game one and rallied for the 11-7 victory. In game two, the Cyclones jumped out to an early lead, only to see the Lightning come back and tie the game but Centenary tacked on three late runs for the 9-6 win.

“Our Diamond of Dreams” is a state-of-the-art complex located at the southeast corner of the Centenary University campus. The facility includes amenities such as a turf field, grandstands with stadium seating, an entry archway, a new scoreboard, and on-campus parking, as well as new dugouts and bullpens.

The complex is also available for use by local recreational leagues and high schools, including Hackettstown High School.

At a field dedication last fall, Steve Somers ’19 HA, who with his wife, Sharon, was lead donor for the new complex, threw out the first pitch at the field.

The Cyclones also played a friendly game against Centenary baseball alumni to christen the field.
