Salesianum’s plans to remake Wilmington’s Baynard Stadium are getting a major financial boost. The school is getting a $16 million gift from the Rocco A. & Mary Abessinio Foundation in part to tear down 96-year old facility and replace it with Abessinio Stadium.
Some residents near a proposed slag grinding facility have taken a hard line against it. Others are hoping to work with the company planning to build it.
