LAS CRUCES (AP) — Baseball has long been a passion for New Mexico State University alumnus Michael Johnson.
He and his older brother used to play and the sport was a true love for his mother. So he and his wife Judy have decided to give the Aggie baseball program a $1.4 million gift for facility upgrades.
Manager Rocky Ward says the money will be a game-changer for the team. He says it will help with recruiting and will give the Aggies a better chance to compete more consistently at the conference level.
The money will go toward dugout renovation, additional stands, upgrades to the scoreboard and video display and a stadium sun cover.
