Ribbon cutting scheduled for Tuesday, October 18, 2016Posted: Oct 7, 2016
Location: Tracy, Calif.
On Tuesday, October 18th at 4:00 p.m., the City of Tracy will host a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Legacy Fields Sports Complex (4901 N. Tracy Blvd) to celebrate the completion of the first phase of construction, which includes seven baseball fields and six soccer fields. The Legacy Fields Sports Complex will aid in responding to the growing local and regional demand for sports facilities. At full build-out, the complex will consist of 166-acres of active sports areas.
“We are excited that the dream of Legacy Fields is finally coming true. It will provide high quality playing fields for local youth sports leagues, while providing a flexible venue for larger events and tournaments,” stated Parks & Recreation Director Andre Pichly. “We fully expect that this premier facility will grow even more and become the destination for youth sporting events in Northern California.”
In an effort to market Legacy Fields as a sports destination in Northern California, the City is unveiling its new Legacy Fields logo and website. The logo draws from the existing City branding design as well as Tracy’s history as a “Tank Town.” The website, http://legacyfieldstracy.com/, provides information on the sports complex, events, partnership opportunities and general facility information.
The City of Tracy has invested roughly $18-million towards the infrastructure and construction of the complex, and has entered into a lease agreement with Tracy Little League for exclusive use of three baseball fields. The remaining baseball and soccer fields will be available to the public for rent in 2017. Tracy Little League will begin playing on the leased baseball fields this fall, with tournaments expected in the spring of 2017.
