The Red Devil's baseball program, twice AAAA State Champions (2008 and 2012), has sent numerous players to play at the collegiate level – and some went on to play professionally. With such a successful program, a high level of input was sought from coaches, school officials, and parents during the design process.

Many meetings among all the “players” involved in the design process assured that the replacement baseball complex maintained the same level of support to the program as the original had achieved.

The baseball field, dugouts, concession building (1,119 square feet), field house (3,142 square feet), and hitting facility (4,941 square feet) are all components of the baseball complex.

The concession building was adapted from two earlier designs the architect completed in the same school district – Monroe High School and Walnut Grove High School. The brick and block structure houses the concession stand, restroom facilities, and a press box with stacking windows providing an unobstructed view of the baseball field. Concrete bleachers between the concession building and home plate completes the spectator area.

The field house contains the coaches’ office, locker, and toilet room; two locker rooms (Varsity and 9th/JV) with athletes’ restroom and showers; and an umpire dressing room.

The buildings and supporting elements were constructed of similar material and colors – brick and metal roofing – to accentuate the school team colors.
