History

Beavers Field was an idea of Al Beavers many years ago when he was coaching the American Legion Post 11 Baseball team (1974-1988). After playing on several nice ballparks around the country, Al thought it would be nice to build a field to play Legion baseball instead of the local high school fields. Al felt if land could be acquired close to the city, it could become a community project. After inquiring about available land owned by the County, it was discovered that several acres were leased for farming on Rt 37 (Granville Pike). With a July 1987 telephone conversation and several months of negotiating, an agreement was reached with the County Commissioners to a long term lease of the 13 1/2 acres to a non profit corporation - Fairfield County Baseball Complex Association Inc. (FCBCA). With the land available, the next step was to raise money to get this hillside property to resemble a baseball complex.
