Lacey, St. Martins talk baseball stadium

December 23rd, 2021 by Ken

How does a new baseball stadium in Lacey sound?   For a number of people, the idea of a stadium is a step forward to making Lacey a sporting destination.

To accomplish that goal, the City of Lacey and St. Martin’s University are currently exploring the option of a joint effort to build a stadium on the college property.  Advocates for such a move feel a new baseball stadium would be for the benefit of the city and the college.

Lacey City Manager Scott Spence noted that Lacey is already a sports destination for many and a stadium would add to the attractiveness of Lacey.  He points out that the Regional Athletic Complex draws sports teams from around the state.  The ball fields are first rate and players like using the facilities.  What’s missing are appropriate seating for fans.  Talk centers around a 3000-5000 stadium which would be attractive to major tournaments.

St. Martin’s would benefit from a stadium and the college would have first use of the new facility.

At this point in time, the idea is only being talked about.
