BSSW Architects completed preliminary designs for Florida SouthWestern State College’s new baseball and softball complex on the northwest corner of campus in Fort Myers. The first phase includes construction of adjacent turf baseball and softball fields, portable seating and batting cages, which would allow the Buccaneers to play home games on campus starting in the spring of 2023. Once future phases are complete, the baseball stadium will have covered seating that accommodates 586 spectators, while the softball field will seat 311 under shelter. Both fields will be outfitted with stadium-quality lighting. Baseball and softball teams will share a locker room and training facility, which also includes public restrooms and concessions. The complex will feature a press box and the overall design incorporates FSW’s signature school colors of aqua and purple. Phase I of the FSW project is expected to be completed prior to the spring 2023 baseball and softball seasons.
