Chris Giacomucci, DE Turf’s executive director, reviewed the first full year of the complex at the luncheon for Central Delaware business leaders.

DOVER — A blue and green Brooks Banta jersey will be the first to go up in DE Turf’s ring of honor.

Bill Strickland unveiled the honor Wednesday at the Greater Kent Committee’s legislative luncheon after sharing updates and memories of the strides and struggles of the sports complex near Frederica.

Mr. Banta, president of the Kent County Levy Court, was among those who came up with the plan for the complex to be built on 80 acres of unused county land with the vision that it would be a sports tourism economic driver in Central Delaware.
