NEW ORLEANS, La. -- A huge accomplishment for Carver High School in the 9th ward, as their "Field of Dreams" finally becomes a reality.
There will be a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the first phase of construction Thursday morning.
A new football field will be built with turf donated by the Saints, as well as bleachers, restrooms, concessions and lighting.
The project is all part of a bigger "Dream Stadium" and new school, which Carver School leaders, and the community have been working to raise money for, since 2008.
