TO THE SYRACUSE SPORTS COMPLEX
If we build it, they will
And that we did.....
The softball and baseball programs in the Syracuse area have shown
tremendous growth in the last ten years. Each year over 25 teams play
on 2 ½ fields. In early 2007, the Syracuse City Council agreed to
make a complex a reality. The Summer of 2010 will be exciting for the
ball programs in the first full summer of games at the new complex.
The Syracuse Sports Complex will prove to be a premier facility to be
used by people of all ages! It has 3 softball/youth baseball fields
with 300’ fencing. One of these fields is used by the Syracuse High
School team for their fall softball season. The fourth field is for
the Legion and Men's Baseball teams. It has a grass infield and a
360' center field fence. The building in the middle of the four
fields has concessions, restrooms, press box, and storage.
To be built - In addition to the ball fields, the master plan includes
a plethora of other fun-filled items as funding is available.
Eventually, the playground equipment will be located south of the
building with netting so the younger fans won’t be troubled by foul
balls. Four picnic shelters will be used by ball teams, families,
reunions, meetings, picnics, and much more. A 360’x 600’
multi-purpose area has room for four practice fields with back stops
at the corners, little league football, and a soccer league. A sand
volleyball court and basketball court are offered for leagues,
tournaments, practice, or fun. A bike/walk path will connect the
entire complex, and can be used to get from one place to another or
for exercise. Parking will be plentiful with a minimum of 532 stalls
and maximum of 1027 stalls.
This complex is not only intended for area youth, but also district
and state competitions. If Syracuse hosts a tournament with 24 teams,
that amounts to a possibility of 288 families being in Syracuse on one
weekend of the summer. In addition to softball tournaments, we can
host summer basketball tournaments, sand volleyball tournaments, and
family reunions in the shelters. It will be an attraction that will
promote local commerce.
