Softball community fighting park closings

"We are urging the girls who play in these games to show up at the meetings in uniform," said Bobby Pena of Triple Crown Sports.
Seventy percent of the events at the three parks are softball fastpitch tournaments, Pena said. The three sites have a total of 14 softball fields and accommodate 33,000 softball players a year. Pena, who is also the softball coach at Xavier College Prep, said the closure of the three complexes would force tournament play to be cut tremendously as teams scramble to find other places to play. High school softball would also be affected, because Xavier plays their home games at Rose Mofford. The city of Phoenix has begun holding 15 hearings to let citizens voice their opinions regarding the impending closures, Pena said. He plans to attend eight of those meetings as a member of the Private Sector Softball Committee, which was formed to fight against the closures of local municipal parks that host softball games. The fate of the sports complexes will be decided March 2, Pena said. After that, closures could happen as soon as June. In the meantime, Pena is trying to raise awareness about the importance of the complexes remaining open. "If the city closes these parks, girls will lose opportunities get college scholarships," Pena said. Phillips is joining Pena to fight the park closures by encouraging teams to attend all the city meetings. Between Phillips and Pena, the two have come up with cost-cutting measures to dig into the total operating costs of the three complexes as much as 50 percent. Pena said that the city is discounting the economic boost softball provides. According to the 2009 Economic Impact Report by Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, girls' slowpitch and fastpitch softball generated $35 million of revenue for the city of Phoenix through means such as airfare reservations, hotel stays and spending at local malls. People who come to Phoenix to watch softball tournaments are a major economic boost that the city would risk losing if they closed the three parks, Pena said. "There is a potential for a lot of revenue to keep these parks open, without tapping into tax dollars," Pena said. The proposed closures would not have any effect on youth and high school baseball, Pena said. For the most part, softball and baseball are not played on the same fields. "Baseball would never get cut," Pena said. "It's too popular.
