Old Potter County Ballpark Set To Come Down

The Amarillo-Potter Events Venue District Board awarded contracts to demolish Potter County Memorial Ballfield.

A board meeting was held Monday morning to discuss items on the agenda for the Amarillo-Potter Events Venue District Board of Directors.

One of the items on the list was to consider an award for the demolition and abatement of the baseball field at the Tri-State Fairgrounds.

The field used to be home to the San Diego Padres Double-A farm team, the Gold Soxs, and several independent league baseball clubs was built in 1948.

The board considered the award to Lloyd Nabors in the amount of $175,000 and to Arlo Environmental in the amount of $23,507 for a total of $198,507 for the demolition of the Potter County Ballfield.

The board also discussed reallocating funds from the demolition project for additional fencing and grounds maintenance and improvements in the area.
