Softball moving to Lambeth . . .


Very happy to see this move. Below was info I gleaned from the inter-web.

The softball program will relocate from their current home at The Park to the historic Lambeth
Field and Colonnade. The new venue will provide an indoor hitting/pitching facility to provide
maximum flexibility for player development. Other highlights of the project include the following
field level areas: team locker rooms, lounge/nutrition area, and a sports medicine room, team
meeting rooms, home/visitor bullpens, laundry, and field maintenance. Coaching and support staff
offices will be located on an upper level of the facility. A new press box will be located above
the concourse and it will accommodate the PA/scoreboard system, replay booth, and spaces for TV, radio and print media. Upgrades to the surrounding site and access road will be necessary to better facilitate pedestrian and vehicular connections to the stadium.

Construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2018 and will need to be completed by 2019 season
play. The adjacent Lambeth Field Residences will remain open throughout construction.
