On February 28, 2014 Lamar Consolidated High School will host an official Opening Game Day Ceremony for its newly constructed Baseball/Softball Athletic Complex. The ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the softball field. The two fields were constructed under the $260 million dollar school bond which was approved in 2011 by Lamar Consolidated Independent School District taxpayers. Both fields are scheduled to be completed during the week of February 24. The two fields are state of the art facilities and are located across the street from the campus at the corner of Herndon and Mustang Avenue. Each field will seat approximately 300 fans. An adjacent parking area will hold up to 90 vehicles. A contemporary designed concession stand will divide the two playing areas.
This ceremony will be the first of its kind in the over sixty year history of the district. The program will consist of the singing of the National Anthem by the Lamar Consolidated High School Choir. The School Song and Fight Song will be played by the school’s band and the cheer squad and drill team will perform a dance routine. Superintendent Dr. Thomas Randle will be in attendance as well as all School Board members. The City of Rosenberg’s Mayor Morales has also confirmed that he will be there. The Sugar Land Skeeters have also volunteer to send it’s mascot to the event. The anticipated guest speaker for the event will be Mr. Jimmy Lee Solomon, former Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations for Major League Baseball and a Lamar High School graduate. Several local business sponsors have agreed to provide free refreshments to fans attending the game.
The baseball game which will include LCHS varsity team will begin at 6:30 p.m. The event is being held to promote school, alumni and community pride in Lamar Consolidated High School.
