Baseball/softball complex gets go-ahead

Posted: Updated:

A baseball and softball complex gets the green light at Tuesday night's Vanderburgh County Commissioners meeting. 

Commissioners voted unanimously for rezoning the land off North Green River Road.
 
The Evansville Convention and Visitors Bureau is behind the project proposed next to Goebel Soccer Complex.
 
CVB Executive Director Bob Warren says tournaments could bring big money in tourism.

"The entire organization has been supporting this ballfield project. We're moving fast-forward with it. We're trying to execute and make sure we get the best deal we can on financing," Warren said. 

The project is estimated to cost between $10 million and $13 million to complete.
