Facilities

May I bring my pet?

Pets are not permitted at any complex unless they are necessary for documented medical purposes. Boarding Kennels are located near each complex.

Are smoking or alcoholic beverages allowed?

No alcohol or tobacco products will be permitted on any of our complexes. Failure to adhere to this rule will result in ejection from the property.

Is there seating for Family members and fans?

Will first aid staff be present?

Yes, a full-service first aid team will be on site to handle any emergency situations or routine medical needs.

What will happen in the event of inclement weather?

If the fields are judged unsafe, we will suspend, postpone, reschedule, or cancel games as needed. We will do everything in our power to remain as on-schedule as we can.
