Fremont, CA-While some might say the California drought is over and there is no longer a need to conserve water, the reality is, water conservation needs to remain as a way of life statewide. And Ohlone College is doing its part with its new baseball and softball fields.

On Wednesday, February 8, 2017, at 4:00 pm, Ohlone College will be hosting a ribbon-cutting grand opening event for its two newest baseball and softball playing fields. Recently completed along with a field house, the turf in the new facilities is 100% artificial. Clean, green, and requiring no water, pesticides, or weeding, it is virtually maintenance-free. The savings in staff time, resources, and supplies will be significant.

Along with the playing fields, there are new batting cages, bullpens, dugouts and team rooms. The new field house will serve as a hub for the college's maintenance staff and athletics trainers.

You are invited to attend this ribbon-cutting, grand opening event! There will be tours of both new fields, many photo opportunities, athletes to interview as well as lite refreshments and a few participant gifts. This event will be held rain or shine, so plan to join Ohlone College for a very special and informative 'grand opening' of their baseball and softball fields!

The fields are part of a major campus renovation made possible by the district's voter passage of the Measure G Bond in 2010. Well underway, the campus upgrades include a multi-level parking structure, site utilities infrastructure replacement, and the construction of three new Academic Core buildings.

If you are able to do so, please RSVP by Friday, February 3 by calling 510-659-6206 or emailing collegeadvancement@ohlone.edu.
