New State Of The Art Turf Field Will Be Terriers Home
This past May the Terriers inked a long term partnership agreement with King's Christian Collegiate to become the primary baseball tenant at their new dual purpose athletic field dedicated to baseball and soccer.
The Terriers will begin play at the stunning 1.7 million dollar complex this August. The state of the art facility is centrally located just south of Highway 407, at the corner of Burnhamthorpe Rd and Neyagawa Blvd.
The turf playing surface will feature a professionally sculptured clay mound. Gorgeous red brick surrounds the perimeter of the field which includes spacious sixty foot long step down pro style dugouts. The baseball dimensions will emulate Fenway Park in reverse, with the monster in right field! Left field will be highlighted by a huge electronic scoreboard complimented by "HOME OF THE TERRIERS" with the program's signature dog head logo on both sides.
Our organization is very proud to be partnered with Kings because, not unlike the Terriers, King's Christian Collegiate promotes and strongly supports the academic and athletic aspirations of young student-athletes.
Along with their winter home at The Baseball Zone, this true "home field" is yet another step in the Terriers pursuit of providing the best possible program year round for it's current and incoming players. This ideal facility will enhance playing conditions for practices, games and tournaments.
We are grateful to King's Christian Collegiate for providing us with the opportunity to partner with them on this tremendous venture, and look forward to many years of fantastic Terriers baseball at this beautiful field.
