Construction is wrapping up on a new baseball diamond in Southport.
Manager of Facilities Bryce Taylor says the new diamond will have a 300-foot outfield fence, and 55, 60, and 65-foot base paths. He adds they've levelled the outfield and put in a new infield.
"The ball diamonds are located on the northwest portion of our property out here at Southport, near our existing ball diamond. This one is just a larger ball diamond."
Taylor says the field is sized for adult slow pitch, but can be brought down to twelve, fourteen, and sixteen-year-old softball measurements. He adds they've started taking bookings for the 2019 season and you can call 204-428-6050 for information.
