Dragons Announce Renovation of Luxury Suites

Dayton, Ohio-The Dayton Dragons announced Thursday that a complete renovation of Fifth Third Field luxury suites is currently underway. Dragons President Robert Murphy made the announcement in a news conference at the ballpark.

The design process began in November and the renovation is expected to be completed by late-March. Fifth Third Field suites are being completely refurbished with new furniture, cabinetry, countertops, flooring including carpeting and ceramic tile, sinks, and some new electrical and plumbing work.   Suites are also being repainted.

The suite renovation is a continuation of major improvements to Fifth Third Field. The Dragons completed a complete reconstruction of the playing surface, including drainage and irrigation, prior to the 2012 season. Improvements have also been made to concession stand operations at the point of purchase.

"Our luxury suites are a big part of the experience at Fifth Third Field," said Murphy. "The renovation is a major upgrade in the fan experience for those viewing the game on the club level and demonstrates our commitment to maintaining and improving one of the finest Minor League Baseball facilities in the country."

Dragons luxury suites provide a great view of the action. Luxury suites amenities include:

    Exclusive ballpark entrance
    Semi-private restrooms
    Heating and air conditioning
    A mini-refrigerator
    LCD flat screen TV with Cable
    Leather furniture
    High-top tables with bar stools
    VIP day-of-game service on club level

Many special catering options, from ballpark fare to fine-dining, are available and can be tailored to meet any need. Luxury suites can accommodate 15-20 fans. Suites are available for full-season rental or on a nightly rental basis. Single-game prices are $595 for games in April and May and $995 for June-September games. Rentals include two VIP parking passes.

BREWERS-REDS

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched seven solid innings, and the Cincinnati Reds stayed in the chase for the NL's top record by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 4-2 on Tuesday night after learning they'll be without their manager for the rest of the week.

The Brewers dropped back-to-back games for the first time in more than a month, and it came at a bad time. They started the day 3 1/2 games behind St. Louis for the final NL wild card spot.

They got no break from the Reds, who clinched the NL Central title on Saturday night.

Manager Dusty Baker met players before the game and revealed he suffered a mini-stroke in addition to being treated for an irregular heartbeat last week. The 63-year-old manager hopes to return to the dugout next week.

REDS-BAKER

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Dusty Baker won't manage the Cincinnati Reds until the final series in St. Louis, giving him time to recover from an irregular heartbeat that left him hospitalized last week.

Baker met with owner Bob Castellini and his team on Tuesday before a game against the Brewers. Bench coach Chris Speier said he'll manage the final three home games against Milwaukee and three in Pittsburgh over the weekend, with Baker taking over for the last three games next week.

The 63-year-old manager was hospitalized in Chicago last Wednesday for an irregular heartbeat, a problem he's had for a while. He was in the hospital for four days, missing the Reds' 6-0 win over the Dodgers on Saturday night that clinched the NL Central title.

INDIANS-WHITE SOX

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have lost sole possession of first place in the AL Central race, with the Indians playing spoiler. Gordon Beckham hit into a game-ending forceout with the potential tying run on second base yesterday as the Indians downed the White Sox 4-3.

Down 4-0 in the fourth inning, the White Sox closed within a run when Paul Konerko homered off Chris Perez leading off the ninth. Perez walked a pair of batters with two outs, and Beckham grounded to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, who threw to second baseman Jason Kipnis for the force.

Chicago (82-72) had held sole possession of the division lead since September 3. Detroit pulled into a tie for the division lead with its win over Kansas City last night.

T25-OHIO ST-MATCHING UP

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Through four games and four victories, Ohio State's defense has faced a continual drumbeat of short passes, quick routes, screens and sweeps.

Every opponent, it seems, has relied on a sleight of hand.

Now the Buckeyes are looking forward to getting into familiar territory when they open Big Ten play.

When No. 14 Ohio State travels to 20th-ranked Michigan State on Saturday, the Buckeyes anticipate they'll run into a more conventional Midwestern attack. Granted, that means having to counteract the 244-pound blasts of the Spartans' massive Le'Veon Bell.

But after a month of chasing people, the Buckeyes think they might benefit from a change of pace from the subterfuge and rush-avoiding quick-hitters in a trade for raw man-on-man power struggles at the line of scrimmage.

T25-UPTIGHT SPARTANS

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Michigan State's lackluster win last weekend got to coach Mark Dantonio.

After the Spartans beat Eastern Michigan 23-7 Saturday, Dantonio hurried through a terse news conference full of abrupt answers. The Michigan State coach said "next question" seven times in under a minute and was clearly annoyed with the way his team played.

On Tuesday, Dantonio spoke with reporters for around a half-hour, but Michigan State isn't making any players or assistants available this week. The Spartans' coach is trying to send a clear message to his players that it's time to get serious.
