Local Sports Roundup 6/23/11
The Galesburg Legion Baseball Team will be gunning for its eighth straight win Thursday evening when Post 285 travels to Geneseo for a game with Henry County scheduled for 6pm. Galesburg battered Oneida Wednesday, hitting 5 home runs in an 18-6 victory. The team will return to Sundburg Field Friday for a game with Macomb, then travel to Washington for a tournament over the weekend.

Western Illinois University's Hanson Field will be the next area football stadium to be equipped with a new synthetic playing surface. WIU announced that the facility will be closed Friday as construction crews remove the grass surface that has been in use since the stadium opened in 1950. The change was approved by the WIU board of trustees in March, and the work is scheduled to be completed August 26th, in time for the Leathernecks home opener against Jacksonville on September 10th.
