The Reading Fightin Phils are grateful and appreciative that the Berks County Commissioners voted today to authorize $3,000,000, that we plan to use to support the required stadium renovation project. Berks County Commissioners Christian Leinbach, Kevin Barnhardt, and Michael Rivera each spent a considerable amount of time visiting with us, and we thank them for their dedication and commitment to help retain this important community asset. With the $3,000,000 commitment from Berks County, the $3,000,000 commitment from the City of Reading, and our $3,000,000 commitment, the collective local contribution now totals $9,000,000. With that commitment in place, we will continue to work with State Senator Judy Schwank, State Representative Mark Rozzi, State Representative Manny Guzman, State Senator David Argall, and State Representative Barry Jozwiak, to secure the final piece of the funding from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
