Construction for the baseball and softball fields along with a bus garage for Robertson County started on Monday, July, 9th. The completion of the fields will be in April 2019. Superintendent Holbrooks goal when arriving at Robertson County, was to have everything located on campus. His goal is now coming to fruition with this renovation. The Black Devils and Lady Devils will have a home site for their games on campus, starting 2019, instead of an off-campus site.
The baseball fields will be located in front of the school while the softball field will be located on property right by the campus.
To start the project, the team has begun to lay out the softball field and clean the perimeter. A GPS system will be used to grade the softball field and bus garage and once that’s completed construction to the baseball field will begin.
The completion of sod for the outfields and the irrigation system is estimated for mid-September.
Funds have been secured for the project, by school bonding and start-up funds, along with a hefty donation by Nelson Hester, Deming alumni. The Fields will be called the Hester Athletic Complex.
