New baseball stadium to be built in Elkhart

Posted:

An Elkhart company says it will build a new baseball stadium in Elkhart this year.  CTT Communications says it has been granted $5 million stimulus bonds from Elkhart County to help develop a $12 million baseball stadium with retail space, offices and a restaurant complex on an 18 acre site.  That site is near the U.S. 20 bypass and County Road 17 in Elkhart.

CTT says the stadium will seat 2,500 people and be home to a summer collegiate league team by the summer of 2011. 

"This is one of those things that adds quality of life to the community," said Elkhart County Commissioner Mike Yoder. "[It] makes us a more attractive community for businesses to come here and for people to live here."

Construction is to start this spring.
