Community to celebrate Sports Complex opening

The community will celebrate its own Field of Dreams Saturday when the new Levelland-Oxy Sports Complex is dedicated.

Under construction since late 2013, the $5.6 million facility will be marked with fanfare, speeches and a ìFirst Pitchî of the season.

The complex, located on the south side of the city, will open at 10 a.m. to the public.

Occidental Petroleum will provide memorial baseballs or softballs to each child while supplies last.

In addition, Atmos Energy will cook a hot dog lunch sponsored by United Supermarkets and Xcel Energy.

Once all of the ceremonies are completed, local leagues such as the Levelland Babe Ruth Fast Pitch Softball will take to the fields to play.

The program will start at 11 a.m.
