Albuquerque Baseball Complex Project Has Begun

Mayor Richard J. Berry, City Councilors Ken Sanchez and Dan Lewis and the Department of Municipal Development are pleased to announce that they have broken ground on the Albuquerque Baseball Complex.

This state of the art complex will boast five baseball fields, allowing for the City of Albuquerque to attract tournaments that were previously not able to come to Albuquerque. In part, this project was key in Albuquerque being selected as the host city for the 2019 National Senior Games.

“Local families spend thousands of dollars every year traveling out of state for youth sports,” said City Councilor Dan Lewis. “I want to see us bring big regional events here to Albuquerque. A facility like this, combined with our great weather, will attract high-level tournaments year ‘round.”

This $17.8 million project will take approximately 10 months and is expected to begin in late January/early February.  Funding for this project is coming from revenue bonds.

“Sports tourism and opportunities for local youth are all dependent on having world class facilities. The Albuquerque Baseball Complex will be just that – the best of its kind. It will attract tourism and investment all while giving our youth a chance to play in a great ball park,” said Mayor Richard J. Berry. “That’s good news for Albuquerque.”

The contractor working on this project is Bradbury Stamm along with architect Consensus Planning and G. Donald Dudley Architects. Together these companies are working together to build a sports complex that the whole City of Albuquerque can be proud of.

“We are looking forward to working diligently with Bradbury Stamm on the construction of the Albuquerque Baseball Complex” said Melissa Lozoya, Acting Director for the Department of Municipal Development. “As designed, it will include all the amenities of a sports complex in order to boost recreational activities in the City of Albuquerque.”
