The rugby pitches at the Crosslink County Sportsplex may be renovated into baseball diamonds. County Parks and Recreation Manager Megan Schur says that they’re seeing more interest from slow pitch groups and senior baseball leagues than actual rugby teams.
“They were built with that intent, but they’re just not being utilized to their full potential, so we believe that possibly baseball would be a better use of that space. If there is the potential to have more than one ball diamond, that would probably be comprised of a senior baseball diamond and potentially two minor or slow pitch size.”
Schur adds that there’s not currently any senior baseball diamonds in the area, and men in the Wheatbelt League are playing out of town in Rycroft and Fairview.
Administration is now looking into what could fit and what it would cost to do the switch. A report is due later this month.
