New bleachers, press box, sound system, scoreboard, dugouts, black top, fence, pitching cages, covered batting cage and storage.

SOFTBALL FIELD
New bleachers, press box, sound system, scoreboard, dugouts, backstop, fence, pitching cages and covered batting cage.

A new building for concessions and restrooms would be located in a central area to serve both baseball and softball fields.
