This time next year, baseball should be in full swing on a new state-of-the-art stadium, giving the Lancers baseball their first home field on campus. Leaders of Central 4Ward, a community fundraising group, held a ceremonial groundbreaking Thursday on the grass field between Brookfield Central High School and the football/track stadium.
