We are extremely excited to let you know that we are still on plan for a multi-phase opening in August. Much hard work has been done behind the scenes so the complex is ready for pre-season training. We appreciate everyone’s flexibility and understanding.
Facility will open in phases
Due to some baseball/softball leagues still finishing up, prep work (see bullet below) has already begun on some fields and planned to be completed by the 2nd week of August. We are currently finalizing target dates (by Field) and will communicate these opening dates in the near future.
Irrigation and Dirt Work
Crews have been reconfiguring and updating irrigation to ensure proper coverage for the infields. Dirt work on the infields is currently underway to level them so when sod is installed the surface is as even as possible. Sod is being installed in phases and is a high density, quality sport "Tifway" which is higher quality and better suited for athletic fields.
Check out these photos of the field preparation being done to get All-Star Training Center ready for pre-season training.
On Friday, Field 3 is getting ready to be sodded.
Large rolls of sod are getting ready to be unloaded for Field 5.
