About the project
The Fort at MIT Ballpark is the heart of baseball in the ACT. MIT Ballpark is the home of the Canberra Cavalry as well as a marquee venue for local clubs and clinics throughout Canberra. Since the reformation of the Australian Baseball League in 2010, attendance at Cavalry games has exploded, which has spurred the need for an upgrade to the ballpark.
The ACT Government has committed $5 million towards the redevelopment of the ballpark, which will begin in early 2018 with an expected completion of November 2018. The redevelopment of the ballpark will help the Cavalry continue their continue their exciting growth by providing unbeatable member and supporter amenities and will help Baseball Canberra by providing state-of-the-art high performance facilities. The Fort is already the most fun place to watch a ballgame in Australia and once it's complete, the Fort at MIT Ballpark will become the premier baseball stadium in Australia.
The money raised through this project will be used to:
- Turn the Cavalry Locker Room into the best home change rooms in the country &
- Create the Baseball Canberra Hall of Fame & Museum, to be located in the Members Bar of the new grandstand.
