What is happening with the new Youth Baseball/Softball Complex?

As a part of Question 1, plans include creating a four (4) field youth baseball/softball complex behind the Hayes Community Center by changing the configuration of four (4) existing fields that already exist. Reconfiguring the fields into a wheel-style layout is desired by youth baseball/softball to improve the experience of those players and spectators. The fields would have covered dugouts, scoreboards, irrigated turf, and approximately 240-foot outfield fences. They would be lighted for evening games/practice, which would increase the number of games/practices that can be played without purchasing more land or building more fields.
