The University of Cincinnati Clermont College Cougars will begin their 2013 baseball season with a new home field thanks to the efforts of Cincinnati Reds all-star right fielder Jay Bruce, the Cincinnati Reds Community Fund, the UC Clermont College administration and the Batavia Township board of trustees. Field construction was completed in November 2012, and the new diamond is expected to be ready for play by April 2013, according to Rex Parsons, administrator of Batavia Township, a community just east of Cincinnati, Ohio.
