Out with the old and in with the new as Brownfield city officials break ground on the new Brownfield Sports Complex. Last week the Brownfield City Council unanimously approved the bid from Teinart Commercial to build the sports complex. According to Parkhill, Smith, & Cooper, the estimated cost of the new complex is around $4.4 million.

Mayor Gonzales said, “I am excited to finally see our plan put into motion and begin the transformation of this property. I look forward to seeing generations grow up here and hope this provides an opportunity for the next “Alex Rodriguez” to realize their talent. I also look forward to the potential economic impact. We’ve already witnessed this in the tournaments at our current complex. So with an upgrade, we hopefully will see even more visitors patronizing our local establishments.”

TownTalk spoke with the Project Manager, Teinart’s Garrett Presnell and asked what might be the completion date. Presnell said should be a 12-month project, so they looking at April 2020, of course, that is without any major set back like a large rain storm.

The new Brownfield Sports Complex will have three baseball fields and three softball fields with new restrooms, new concession area, and press boxes for each field. There will also be scoreboards for each field with their own electronic scoring pad.
