The main stadium will have a turf surface that can quickly be used for baseball or converted for soccer. The main stadium will have an owner's box, two VIP boxes, a media box, and TV camera outposts included. The project will have a themed national chain restaurant, a national chain pro shop/sporting goods store. To attract tournament play with players from around the United States the property is planned to have multi-purpose housing units for twenty-four teams with dining area for teams and a swimming pool for team use. A splash zone and play ground are planned to great visitors inside the main gate, followed by a fitness trail to guide visitors all around the park with distance markers every 1/8th mile and various stations for workouts. W are also planning indoor/outdoor batting cages, an indoor fitness and weight training center, a fully staffed first aid building and restrooms strategically placed as required by local code. Retail food and drink kiosks will be scattered around the park.

The Company's preliminary estimates the entire project is in the $40 million range. The Company plans to use a combination of debt and equity to complete the project.
"I could not be more energized over the new direction of the company. Youth sports and sports venues is a multi-billion dollar emerging segment of the overall sports market. After months of planning and exploring various avenues of financial support, I believe we have hit a home run with both debt and equity players. I am convinced we will be able to arrange the combination of debt and equity needed to implement our plan," said John V. Whitman Jr., CEO and Chairman.
