The following were released to us by the city of Alexandria:
ALEXANDRIA, La. – As the repair work increases at Johnny Downs Sports Complex, the baseball and softball practice fields are no longer available to teams right away.
Park Inspector Cam Hallman said construction is scheduled to begin in early April. However, depending on the weather and progress, the practice fields may open earlier.
“We’ll reopen them as soon as we can,” Hallman said.
Johnny Downs Sports Complex was badly damaged by a tornado in December 2019. Repairs to the football fields have been made, and these fields were reopened last autumn. The eight baseball / softball courts were more damaged and it will take longer to repair. The city expects to have completed repairs in time for Alexandria to host the Dixie Softball World Series in July as planned.
