Canton Sports Center To Host Field Fun Day

Area residents are invited to a special ribbon-cutting ceremony in celebration of the Canton Sports Center's recent field renovations at the twelve-diamond complex on Tuesday, April 30, from 6 p.m.- 8 p.m. at Quad #1.

The Ribbon Cutting ceremony will be held at 6 p.m., with fun activities scheduled until 8 p.m. This family-friendly event will take place at the Canton Sports Center, located at 46555 W. Michigan Avenue in Canton, MI. 

This free fun day includes: contests, clinics, food, and open practice fields. An MLB Pitch Hit & Run contest will be held for boys and girls 7-14, with a visit from Detroit Tigers PAWS mascot & Energy Team. In addition, Greater Canton Youth Baseball and Softball Association will host its Opening Day, that will feature a LAB skills clinics, equipment demos, home run derby, and obstacle course for all ages.  The Canton Cricket Association's summer registration will also be held with equipment and game demos.

The upgraded fields feature a new laser grade, crowning, and replacement of the infield skinned surface with a higher performing clay compound called DuraEdge. This infield mix will help to improve safety, reduce weather delays and decrease dust for players and fans. In addition, washout sideline areas have been filled in with new sod to help improve performance in foul ball areas and overall drainage at the field. New protective netting and warm up areas round out the improvements.

This project delivers a superior field refresh as Canton Sports Center continues to support local adult, youth and senior leagues during the week and play host to 1500 tournament teams from April-October each year. Canton continues to draw local and national elite athletes as their destination for baseball, softball, cricket, lacrosse and flag football. This dramatic improvement will secure our ranking as one of the best Sports facilities in Michigan.

The Canton Sports Center features a twelve-diamond lighted softball/baseball operation with state of the art facilities, as well as Kicker’s Sports Bar & Grill - a full-service restaurant.
