Austintown School District announces plans for sports complex

Posted: Updated:
AUSTINTOWN, Ohio -

Some changes are coming to the Austintown Athletic Complex. 

The Austintown School Board held a groundbreaking ceremony for the $2.2  million project.

There will be a new turf soccer field behind the football field.

New turf will be put on the football field and the baseball field will get turf as well.

"We can really address the issues we have in North East Ohio of playing baseball on a field that you just can't get on," said Superintendent Vincent Colaluca. 

He explained how the spring weather can make the field too wet to play on.  "You know, you are supposed to get 28-30 games in during a baseball season and there are times we only average 15 games. This turf field will really address those issues," Colaluca said.

This will make Austintown the only turf baseball field in the Mahoning Valley. Construction will begin soon.
