SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A bronze statue of former major league pitcher Stanley Coveleski will be installed as part of $400,000 in improvements to the South Bend Silver Hawks stadium.

The South Bend Tribune reports team owner Andrew Berlin is upgrading signs, installing a new sound system and making other changes in the offseason.

The minor league team sold the naming rights to its baseball field to an Indian-owned casino in Michigan last year. It’s now known as Four Winds Field at Coveleski Stadium.

Team President Joe Hart says the new signs won’t include the Coveleski name, but a statue of the late hurler who once called South Bend home will be erected inside the center field gate.

The statue will be unveiled on opening day April 8. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
