The popular complex, located off Findlay Street at 1103 Gateway Drive, reported it had $2.3 million in damages by the tornado.
The current plan for redevelopment, which will be at least $2 million for the entire complex, will consist of two different buildings. The first will have concessions, bathrooms and offices and the second will be strictly for sporting “more like an air-dome type” structure with full-size fields, Coby said.
The new dome-style building that can serve for football, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, baseball and softball is expected to be ready in the late 2020 to early 2021.

“We’ve got all eight baseball diamonds up and running. We are in full gear,” Coby said. “We are 100 percent rebuilding like we said we were.”
The complex is working on a FEMA loan now for additional funding, he said.
