Event organizers love that baseball and softball teams playing at the 100-acre Seminole County Sports Complex can be back in action within a half hour of a heavy Florida rainstorm.
Orlando North Seminole County Director of Sports Tourism Danny Trosset says the complex
, which includes nine turf fields and six natural grass fields, has stayed booked every weekend since its grand opening in May, when it hosted the 1,500-athlete United States Specialty Sports Association’s Florida State Baseball Championship. “It’s a sports tourism engine,” Trosset says.
The complex’s flexible fields can accommodate baseball, girls fast-pitch softball, soccer and lacrosse. Seminole County will add more capacity in the softball arena in May 2017, when it plans to open Soldiers Creek Park, which is now undergoing a $6 million renovation and will include six fields suited for girls fast-pitch softball and youth baseball.
