Akron, OH – The Racers Charities continues to improve historic Firestone Stadium with the addition of the Champions Courtyard. Joey Arrietta, Racers Charities, President, took to the bobcat herself to begin the process of memorializing champions from the OHSAA Girls Softball Tournaments, the MAC Championships and the Akron Racers. The first phase of the 900-brick plaza will feature nearly 250 bricks. The bricks, purchased by friends and fans, will commemorate championships won, as well individuals that have a special connection to this historic venue.
“This has been on my plate for a while and I am thrilled that we are breaking ground to bring to life the historic moments and people connected, in some way, to Firestone Stadium,” noted Arrietta. “The Courtyard will honor the OHSAA, the MAC and the Racers with special logo sandstones surrounded by the championship teams that have purchased individual bricks to date.”
Championship Courtyard bricks can be purchased by going online at akronracers.org or by calling 330.376.8188 to obtain an order form. The bricks are $100 each.
