Face the State Flashback: Rentschler Field Grand Opening


Ten years ago this summer a landmark was born. Rentschler Field, the home of the UConn Huskies, opened with grand fanfare after years of debate, planning and construction. In this Sunday’s Face the State Flashback, we’ll show you a segment of an Eyewitness News special we put together in 2003 to commemorate the historic day and the launch of a now revered place, cthat many simply call “the Rent.”


In the clip, you’ll hear from then UConn coach Randy Edsall, in a special anchored by Eric Clemons and Dina Falco. Mark Brown’s report on the quest to build Rentschler is fascinating.


Tune in this Sunday at 11AM for Face the State, only on WFSB Channel 3.



By the way, I missed this fun assignment of covering the grand opening of “the Rent,” but for good reason. Kara and I were on our honeymoon. Here we are in Lake Como, Italy.
