Two schools will christen new baseball fields in the next few days and weeks.

Calvary Christian’s new $1.5 million field will be ready to go for Friday’s home opener against Tampa Prep. The on-campus field has synthetic turf in the infield and outfield as well as bleachers on the first- and third-base sides. Those bleachers, however, may not be ready until later in the season. The Warriors used to play home games at Jack Russell Stadium in Clearwater.

Boca Ciega will also play on its new baseball and softball fields this season. The Pirates baseball team does not play a home game until Feb. 26 against Northside Christian. The field is natural grass and sits on land that was previously occupied by the Arnold S. White Southern Region Little League Complex.

There are no lights on either the baseball or softball fields. Since Boca Ciega opened in 1953, the baseball and softball teams played a few blocks away at Hoyt Field in Gulfport.
