The Italian Baseball and Softball Federation (FIBS) is reporting that the renovations of the baseball and softball complex in Acquacetosa, in the north of Rome have been completed. The project was led by FIBS and the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI). The baseball and softball stadium is now ready to be used in national, but also international competitions as it meets all requirements.
Main items during the renovations were the installation of a new wireless operated scoreboard, new stands for up to 500 people which can be expanded to larger capacity, padding on all walls and a new pitching mound with clay which also is used in the ballparks of the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals. The regional federation of Lazio is going to move into offices which are situated in the clubhouse of Acquacetosa.
The complex is located not far from the FIBS headquarters in Rome. It is expected that besides competitions also training camps of national teams as well as clinics for players, coaches and umpires will be held there.
