ASA Softball Complex

Renovations complete at ASA Hall of Fame Complex

Renovations to the ASA Hall of Fame Complex continue and look to be on schedule for the 2003 Big XII Championships May 1-4. The renovations are in part to a bond issue passed by the citizens of Oklahoma City in October of 2000 and funds provided by the Amateur Softball Association.

Work on the stadium and complex will consist of adding 519 new parking spaces and the construction of the new Hall of Fame Plaza and Sports Festival Esplanade. The Esplanade will be a 300-foot long, 40-foot wide walkway for vendor tents and Fan Fest activities during the Big XII Softball Championship and the NCAA Women's College World Series.

In addition, 3,000 additional permanent seats will be added along the first and third base sides of the stadium, as well as new bathrooms. The additional seating will increase the total seating of the stadium to 5,000. A new upper concourse connecting the north fields with concessions and bathrooms is also in the works.

Two additional fields with 300 permanent seats are also in the works during the renovation.

The ASA Hall of Fame Stadium will be undergoing a face lift in the next couple of years, thanks to a bond issue passed by the citizens of Oklahoma City in October of 2000.

Work on the stadium is scheduled to begin in July of 2002, and will consist of adding 519 new parking spaces and the construction of the new Hall of Fame Plaza and Sports Festival Esplanade. The Esplanade will be a 300-foot long 40-foot wide walkway for vendor tents and Fan Fest activities during the Big XII Softball Championship and the NCAA Women’s College World Series.

In addition, 3,000 additional permanent seats will be added to along the first base and third base sides of the stadium, as will new bathrooms. The additional seating will increase the total seating of the stadium to 5,000. A new upper concourse connecting the north fields with concessions and bathrooms will also be built. Construction is to be completed by May 2003.

In phase II of the renovation, two new fields with lighting and covered concrete stadium seating will be built west of the existing complex. Plans are also in place to refurbish the current north field with permanent seating.
