Construction of Lafayette’s new softball complex is set to begin this fall and city officials hope to complete it by next spring.
The park will have four fields outfitted with lighting, scoreboards and a sound system – plus a concession stand and press box. It’s designed to centralize the city’s softball teams. Previously, games have been split between two other sites.
Lafayette Girls Softball League President Matt Teal says the area needs more space for youth softball – last season, the League held more than 160 games.
