ENDWELL, N.Y. — A producer of Hollywood blockbusters who's also a part-owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers is part of a team that has helped a New York high school open its new baseball field.
Producer Thomas Tull joined Hall of Famers Johnny Bench, Rich “Goose” Gossage and Joe Morgan at Maine-Endwell High School on Wednesday to mark the official opening of the $2.2 million baseball facility.
Named for Gary Crooks, the school’s longtime baseball coach, the field features a synthetic-turf surface.
Mr. Tull, a 1988 Maine-Endwell graduate who played for Crooks, paid for the new field. The Hollywood hits by his Legendary Entertainment production company include the last two “Batman” movies and “The Hangover” films.
Endwell is just north of the New York-Pennsylvania state line and just west of Binghamton, N.Y.
