John Stanley Welzyn was the public address announcer during high school games at the stadium from 1964 until retiring in 1996.

Upgrades included new stadium entrances, new fences, new gates, new scoreboards, plus the demolition of the existing restrooms and locker rooms under both grandstands then construction of new locker rooms, restrooms, and concession areas to replace them.
