BLUE ASH SPORTS CENTER

The Blue Ash Sports Center (11540 Grooms Road, Blue Ash, OH 45242) was formally opened in May 1987. Today, the Center is a premier 37-acre facility, comprised of 11 baseball and two soccer fields (nearly half of which are lit for evening play). Many local high school sports teams call the Sports Center home, as do a variety of youth sports associations in the area. With very well-maintained fields and award-winning facilities, the Sports Center is a popular venue.

The Sports Center also hosts contests for certain Adult Sports Leagues throughout the year. With ample parking, two restroom facilities, and a covered concession area, the Sports Center is the ideal venue for any event.

Our fields are maintained by our on-site, in-house ground maintenance crew. With specialized equipment and experienced staff, we are able to keep the fields and grounds well maintained and groomed day-after-day throughout the entire season.

CROSLEY FIELD
Reconstructed for advanced level baseball, the Crosley Field restoration project was formally dedicated to the "Youth of Baseball" in July of 1988. 

Crosley Field was reconstructed by using the blueprints from the original stadium, including the same field dimensions, grass infield, the infamous outfield terrace, and the same dimensions, height, and angles of the outfield wall. 

The scoreboard was reconstructed to simulate the original scoreboard from Crosley when the "last pitch" was thrown on June 24, 1970. No detail was left out in the reconstruction process, including the original sponsors of the Reds and the scores from around the league at that time.
