For Hometown News

The ballpark where Jackie Robinson broke the Major League Baseball color barrier will be getting a $1.25 million upgrade.

The Daytona Cubs and the City of Daytona Beach have agreed on a two-phase plan to improve restrooms, expand the food and beverage areas, create a new east entrance and add a picnic gathering space.

Also, the Cubs player clubhouse will get an expanded fitness training area and office space for coaching staff.  The Daytona Cubs office staff will move into the city's former Leisure Services building at 110 E. Orange Ave.

As part of the agreement, the baseball team will be allowed to charge for parking in the public spaces at City Island Library and the Volusia County Courthouse Annex.

Financing for the renovations will come from city Community Redevelopment Agency funds, a grant from Daytona Beach Racing & Recreational Facilities District and the Daytona Cubs.
