Flames demolished the McGavock High School baseball team’s concession stand overnight Sunday.

Security officers discovered the burning building around 3:00 a.m. Monday and reported the fire, which authorities believe was intentionally set.

Blue paint was also found splashed on top of some commemorative bricks near the burned concession stand.

Becky Moss, a parent and member of the booster club, told News 2 vandals have broken in a couple of times before so they added locks to keep them out of the building.

The concession stand had several appliances inside, as well as food, drinks, supplies, shirts and jerseys, all of which the booster club had planned to sell.

The damage is estimated to be several thousand dollars.

“So much heart went into it,” Moss told News 2. “It’s all gone. It’s just wrong.”

She hopes to build a new concession in the near future.

The incident could take a chunk out of fundraising for the team. It relies on the booster program to help pay for things like travel expenses, and the team also needs new uniforms for next season.

It is not known yet if insurance will cover the damage.
