Project goals include: 

  • Improve quality of baseball field and supporting amenities (dugouts, grandstands, bull pens, concessions, etc.)
  • Improve public access and opportunities for year-round recreation beyond baseball
  • Improve entrances, accessibility, and visitor experience
  • Celebrate and memorialize past players and the history of the park
