on New Baseball-Softball Complex

 

WATSON, La. – Livingston Parish Public Schools will soon begin construction on a new $6.8 million baseball-softball complex at Live Oak High School.  The complex will include artificially-turfed fields, covered grandstands, coaches’ offices, team locker rooms, an indoor hitting facility, press boxes and lights.

School officials and community leaders on Wednesday (Sept. 12) participated in a ground breaking ceremony for the project, which is expected to be completed by next school year.

The new complex will be located on the campus, adjacent to the football field.  The facilities will feature teaching technology that will allow the coaches to film practice and analyze the players’ hitting and pitching techniques.

“These new facilities will allow our school to bring our baseball and softball program to the next level,” Live Oak High School Principal Beth Jones said.  She noted that the turfed indoor facility will allow students to practice in inclement weather, and having the complex on campus will improve safety, as students will not have to leave the campus for practice.
