Sterlington breaks ground for sports complex
In Phase 1, the first pod of five baseball fields will be constructed.
“They will actually be 220 feet in length, which gives us the ability for baseball and girl’s softball,” Breland said. “By building the one pod with five fields in it, it will actually open us up so we can host travel ball tournaments.”
Phase 2 would include five additional fields of the same size while Phase 3 would see the construction of five regular baseball fields 375 feet in length, which would provide the town with the playing capacity to attract major high school tournaments.
A goal of the project since its inception has been attracting increased economic development in Sterlington while also driving traffic to existing businesses, thereby increasing revenue. When the town introduced the sports complex concept, discussion of possible hotel and restaurant construction was presented at council meetings by various developers.
