Alexandria may become home field for baseball and softball teams

Georgetown baseball and softball teams may soon have a new home field.

University officials are currently in talks with the city of Alexandria about signing a multi-year lease for the use of fields near Four Mile Run.

City Councilmember Frank Fannon told The Washington Post that under the deal, the University would pay for capital needed to renovate the fields—located near Cora Kelly Elementary School—and in return the city would give the University the lease.

Fannon started talks with the University about such an arrangement soon after his election last year.

In a statement, Lee Reed, Georgetown’s athletic director, said, “There are no specific plans, timetables or commitments to move forward at this time, but we will continue to explore opportunities appropriately in order to best meet our needs.”

The city held a community meeting Monday night to allow the public to express their opinions.
