The Glendale Unified School District and city of Glendale entered a joint-use agreement for the use of Stengel Field at the district’s board of education meeting Tuesday.
With a vote of 4-1, the district approved a memorandum of understanding with the city that put the district in charge of the maintenance, operations and management responsibilities of Stengel Field. The move alleviates some cost on the city and secures a “true home field” for the Crescenta Valley High baseball team for the district.
In addition to Crescenta Valley, the Glendale Community College baseball team will be given “exclusive use” of Stengel for games and practices, with the Falcons receiving top priority for scheduling. Glendale and Babe Ruth Little League baseball will also be able to use the field for games.
The Glendale Angelenos, a summer collegiate wood-bat baseball team that has called Stengel home since it formed in 2011, was not mentioned in the memorandum of understanding. The report does give the district the opportunity to reserve the field for third parties after an application and approval process.
