Times Republican: Sports complex coming to Newton
A new group called “Project Fastpitch” announced plans Wednesday for a 32-million dollar, 16-field tournament softball complex on the southeast edge of Newton. The proposed development directly north of Iowa Speedway includes a 300-thousand square foot enclosed building with four regulation-sized softball fields, batting cages, meeting rooms, and a restaurant. Project Fastpitch leader Troy Strawhecker says that building will be the first of its kind in the country and guarantees games will not be rained out. Strawhecker estimates the complex could annually generate an additional 150-thousand hotel/motel room nights in Central Iowa.– KMAland.com
