Idea for new softball stadium.

Have been looking at the proposal for having the softball stadium at Lambeth and I think it's best to leave that as an open field. "Regular students" need to have areas they can go throw a frisbee and play pick-up games.

So here's an idea: Redo the Copeley Hill Apartments area. Tear down all the existing housing there and redo that entire area. It seems to not be the best use of space now. Build a new softball stadium across Copeley from the JPJ parking lot and build new graduate housing on the rest of the site. Also use it as an opportunity to create more connections between the JPJ area and North Grounds. This would obviously be more expensive but seems like a better solution for the long run. Save the space where U-Hall is now for a future indoor track facility.
