GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- Nearly 11-months after Suplizio Field closed for construction, the formal ribbon was cut to announce it's grand opening Wednesday.

The stadium has been open for use by CMU athletics and high school athletics for the past 3 weeks. However, as JUCO Chairman Jamie Hamilton recalls, the official construction plans weren't planned to finish until May 20th. "But we all, in the back of our minds, wanted to have the opportunity for a [high school] senior to get a chance to play here at this facility before the JUCO World Series," Hamilton said.
