Grace to Hold Groundbreaking for New Baseball Stadium

Grace College’s athletic department is pleased to announce a groundbreaking for its new baseball facility.

Grace will host a groundbreaking ceremony for the newly named Tom Roy – UPI Park this week on Thursday at 4:45 p.m.

The ceremony, which is open to the public, will be held at Grace’s baseball field. All Grace baseball alumni are also encouraged to attend the historic occasion.

Grace’s current facility will undergo a major facelift during the summer, including a new backstop, netting system and team dugouts as well as laying the groundwork for future phases of the facility.

The stadium will be named after Tom Roy, a former head coach for the Lancers and founder of Unlimited Potential, Inc. UPI is an international, 42-year-old organization that ministers to professional baseball players.

Roy has been discipling baseball players on and off the field for several decades, and the new stadium will help honor that legacy.

“We are thrilled to have the chance to enhance our athletic department with this baseball stadium. Tom has an incredible legacy of ministry, and we are excited to continue that legacy for future generations of Lancers,” said Grace Director of Athletics Chad Briscoe. “This stadium will enhance the student-athlete experience and also give our team a great platform to share their faith.”

The baseball project has multiple phases. To see the proposed renderings and help Grace reach all of its fundraising goals, visit the official giving site at
