Since October 5, the city of Reims has developed two fields for the Reims Champagne Baseball Club in Les Églantines.
At Eglantines, a site that hosts the largest number of football pitches in Reims, the city is setting up a first baseball field exclusively in clay, as in the United States, for older men and women from a field from 1988 that combined grasslands and mowed land.
At a distance of 20 meters, she built a second baseball field, clay and grass this time, for juniors, women and men.
The development operation, delayed by a few months of containment, covers a plot of 1823 m², includes the planting of 300 m² of grass and has a total budget of 147,000 €.
The clubs have entrusted the approved plastic supports to “batting boxes”, “bases” and “pitcher’s mounds”.
This unique project will end in November.
