JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Jan. 21, 2012) – Members of the Mullican Flooring management team presented a check for $10,000 to the East Tennessee State baseball program Saturday during the Buccaneers’ men’s basketball game against Lipscomb.

The funds will go towards the purchase of field equipment for use at the baseball program’s new Thomas Stadium, which is scheduled for completion this year.

“Tony Skole is a first class guy and we believe that this new stadium will take ETSU baseball to the next level,” said Mullican Flooring President Neil Poland. “We were happy to be a small part of this project.”

Specifically, the funds will go toward the purchase of items such as a new batting cage, L-screens, a portable pitching mound, a pitching machine, and field maintenance equipment.

ETSU head coach Tony Skole said Mullican Flooring’s gift is greatly appreciated.

“Everyone associated with our baseball program at ETSU is extremely grateful and appreciative of the Mullican Flooring Family,” Skole said. “Their generous efforts continuously benefit our community and our campus. Their gift will have a great impact on our program, our new facility and will have a positive influence on our current players as well as those players in the future.”

ETSU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dave Mullins said gifts such as this one from the community are especially helpful in the program’s efforts to improve facilities.

“We are truly thankful for what Mullican Flooring has done for our baseball program,” Mullins said. “This is an example of the type of community support that allows our program to continue to improve. All of our new facilities have been made possible thanks to the generosity of individuals and businesses throughout our region. We could not have done any of this without that support.”
