Thanks to the generous donation of $1.4 million from an NMSU alumnus, the facilities for Aggie baseball have undertaken a new look for the 2015-2016 season.
NMSU graduate Mike Johnson and his wife, Judy, had many reasons to donate to this program, among them was to honor Mike’s mother, Mineola, who loved watching Mike and his brother play baseball.
“My older brother and I grew up playing the game in Roswell,” Johnson says in an interview with the NMSU News Center. “The love for the game was instilled in us by my mother, who was a huge baseball fan.”
They hope the renovations to Presley Askew Baseball Field will serve as a memorial to Mineola and bring a great fortune to NMSU baseball.
This donation will not only improve the facility that the team plays…
