“If you build it, they will come.” That is exactly what “The Scott Hall Field of Dreams Foundation” is hoping will happen when their facility is complete in Northern Colorado Springs. The organization is named after a local coach, mentor, and leader who passed away unexpectedly. His passion for youth sports led friends and family to build this complex for the youth in Colorado Springs.
The complex will serve youth by offering fields for: baseball, softball, soccer, football, lacrosse, and basketball. It will also offer many traditional park facilities and amenities. According to Field of Dreams, “Many of these young athletes and their families have to travel out of the area to find fields for their games due to the shortage of fields and increase in demand and exponential growth of our region’s population. Field of Dreams will satisfy the need for more playing fields for Colorado youth.”
The first phase is scheduled to open in Fall of 2016 and will be called the “Scott Hall Field of Dreams.” It will be built at the “Larry Ochs Sports Complex.” The complex will consist of a 70 acre youth sports park with a mix of turf fields, baseball/softball diamonds, concession facilities and restrooms. Phase II, which is set to break ground in 2017, will include an indoor sports facility and additional ball fields. The park will be located at Powers and Hwy 83.
