Brian Wilson Field - Batavia, Ohio

This is the first of a number of posts from a project that has been taking place this fall.  Brian Wilson Field in Batavia, OH is a new field that will host the UC Clermont baseball program beginning in 2013.

The plan is as follows:

  1. Take an existing softball field with 200 ft fences and create a college baseball field
  2. Build a new backstop
  3. Irrigate the playing surface
  4. Create a new infield surface using Dura Edge products
  5. Build a new warning track
  6. Sod the infield and foul territory areas
  7. Seed the outfield
  8. Build a new mound and two bullpens
  9. Opening Day - March 2013
Here are a few before and after photos of the project as a first overview:
