After years of discussions and waiting on park bond funds, construction to replace the current LLV complex on Willow Springs School Rd is happening! We expect equipment to begin showing up at the complex on June 21 with actual construction to begin July 1. The picture above, while an older concept, is very similar to what the facility will look like when fully opened in early 2023 - the two 60' diamonds are expected to be available by our Fall 2022 season. All 6 fields are expected to be turf, that will allow us to play more baseball and softball as mounds will be portable. While there are still details to be worked out with the county, we are looking forward to this project finally getting underway.
As a send off to LLV, the last game to be played there will be June 19, a District 10 All Star game for the 9-11s pitting SYA against CYA. Game time is at 6pm, so plan on coming out and enjoying the night. Teams will continue to use the facility for practices through June 26th.
We will be reaching out to all our volunteers for the following week as we prep the facility, in removing all items that we can save and reallocate to our other locations. Look for more details about the weekend of Jun 26/27 and all the help we will need, especially with moving tractors around (anyone got a trailer that can be used?) and other items usch as bases, nets, rakes, padding, etc. Please mark your calendars for that weekend to help us out for an hour or two.
