Summer Season

Baseball field


Our baseball field is available to citizens. It can be booked for one or more friendly games or for a league.

Reservations are free of charge, but a security deposit of $100 (for residents) and $200 (for non-resident) is required in cash upon reservation. This deposit will be kept for the duration of the agreement. If there is no damage to the field, the deposit will be returned in full at the end of the reservation. Otherwise, this amount may be used to cover the costs of any damage.

A reservation is not necessary to use the field; however, if a user would like the city to prepare the field (to set up the plates, draw the lines, etc.), a reservation is required.

In addition, a user who has a reservation contract has priority over users who do not have a contract but who wish to use the field at the same time.

We advise users to bring their own equipment, but reserving the field gives you access to equipment (sticks, gloves) if you need it.

Rate

Residents of Shannon: Free
Non-residents: $ 25 / hour (taxes included) including the presence of a supervisor

Reservations are free of charge but a security deposit of $100 (for residents) and $200 (for non-resident) is required in cash upon reservation.
