LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The first wave of a roughly $13.5 million renovation project to a minor league baseball park in downtown Lansing is nearly complete.

The Lansing State Journal reports (http://on.lsj.com/1Od1lvE ) the project at the home of the Lansing Lugnuts includes updated restrooms, team locker rooms, batting cages, fan seats, suites, picnic areas and playground equipment, concessions areas, stadium lighting and scoreboard.

The work at Cooley Law School Stadium is being paid for with city-issued bonds.

It’s the biggest renovation project in the stadium’s 20-year history. About $4 million was spent between 2006 and 2008 on new seats, roof repairs, mechanical work and fresh paint and carpeting. Since 2008, between $100,000 and $150,000 was spent annually.

By next year, the stadium also will have a four-story apartment building along the outfield.
