if you build it,hewill come... that's the iconic line from the movie 'field of dreams.' northeast mississippi community college is one step closer to building its own fieldsof dreams... earlier this month, the northeast board of trustees officially approved a bid for a brand new on campus baseball and softball facility. this is an artist's rendering of what the complex might look like. the facility has an estimated 8.16 million dollar price-tag and is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2020 season. northeast baseball and softball currently play home games at booneville city park. richy harrelson: 'our recruits are asking about it, players are asking about it, former players are asking about it. there's so much excitement about it, and even when i go out recruiting around the state and outside the state people are asking about it so we're fixing to have one of the nicest facilities in the united states.' jody long: 'i've always felt like if we could get kids to visit we have an opportunity. and now if you get kids on a visit and you're able to show them the best facility in the state i think it's a win-win situation for the college and the student-athlete.' auburn has extended head baseball coach butch
