Albuquerque Baseball Complex Project Awarded

January 12, 2017

Albuquerque, NM- The City of Albuquerque issued a competitive Request for Proposals for the construction of the regional Albuquerque Baseball Complex in November 2016. After review and evaluation of four bidders, the Notice of Award was issued to Bradbury Stamm Construction.

“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.”

In part, this project was key in Albuquerque being selected as the host city for the 2019 National Senior Games.

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.

“Albuquerque families spend hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars every year traveling out of state to baseball and softball tournaments,” remarked Councilor Dan Lewis. “This state-of-the-art complex will enable the City to attract those tournaments for all ages and skill levels, along with the sports tourism dollars that come with them. We are proud to provide this type of tournament-level space for our local teams to test their skills, and we’re very excited to welcome the out-of-state teams that will come here to compete while their families enjoy our local attractions during their stay.”

“This project will be great for our community and families as well as those coming in for baseball tournaments, brining dollars into our city and Albuquerque’s Westside” added City Councilor Ken Sanchez.

“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.”
