The Brennan Klein Field Foundation presented the city of Mt. Vernon with the keys to the new multi-use facility at Brennan Klein Field Friday morning. The $250-thousand facility includes a concession stand, restrooms, and locker rooms among other facilities for teams using the field.
Chris Klein is the co-president of the Brennan Klein Field Foundation. He says this only adds to one of the nicest sports facilities in southern Illinois.
Klein says the entire project was funded by grants and private donations, including a $50,000 grant from the Schweinfurth Foundation.
