Letter: More baseball, softball fields are needed to showcase our local athletes

I fully support the purchase of land for softball, soccer, field
hockey, etc. I’ve owned the travel club softball team San Jose

Dear Editor,

I fully support the purchase of land for softball, soccer, field hockey, etc. I’ve owned the travel club softball team San Jose Sting for the past 13 years and have seen softball tournaments bring a lot of revenue to the local community.

Club teams need to eat, sleep and entertain their kids when they are done playing for the day. I currently run a very successful softball showcase called the Bay Area Showcase and have over 50 college coaches from all over the nation attending the tournament and looking for players to play softball at the college level.

We need more fields to get local kids seen in front if these college coaches and I’d be interested in talking to whoever is running this project to assist wherever needed to make this happen!

Bob Perales, San Jose
