The Amanda J. Buckley “Field of Dreams” Memorial Stadium and Training Facility Development team set about rehabilitating an old baseball field at Plant Drive Park in Palm beach Gardens, Florida on November 10, 2007. The transformation took less than 3 months for this team of dedicated private and public personnel and corporations. It was nothing short of a small miracle to see the dozens of workers put forth maximum effort to get Phase I of the project completed in time for the February 12th, 2008 Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Proclamation and the first game that evening. This monumental task was accomplished with love, determination, and dedication by all those involved sharing the resolve that the building of this facility will enhance the capability of the area to ensure that children can come and nurture their mental and physical capabilities in a safe, secure, and fun environment.

Building the facility in phases has allowed it to be used continuously by the Palm Beach Gardens Lady Gators High School Team, the Palm Beach Gardens Youth Athletic Association, Summer College Exposure Travelling Teams, City of Palm Beach Gardens recreational programs, Major League Baseball RBI Program, and area college teams. The stadium is being built jointly between private corporations, individuals, the “Give A Smile to Child” Foundation and the City of Palm Beach Gardens

The facility is currently entering Phase Four. Phase One, Two and Three have been completed and currently provides:

  • Fast Pitch Softball field with a 225 foot permanent six foot outfield fence and 8 foot perimeter fencing enclosing the whole field. The field is bordered by an eight foot wide yellow coquina warning track.
  • 30 foot tall netting behind home plate mounted on top of 3 foot high cushioned concrete block knee wall,
  • Seating for 225.
  • Home and visitor dugouts with high back seating and water fountains.
  • Training/Warm up area consisting of 2 artificial turf batting cages, 5 soft toss stations, 3 pitcher/catcher bullpens, area for fielder warm-ups.

The future phases of construction will provide structures and facilities to further enhance the overall project making it suitable to provide additional training/educational programs, encompassing both mental and physical capabilities, for the area’s children and families, plus host local, state and national events.

Included in the future phases are permanent stadium chair back seating, concession stand, bathroom facilities, announcers booth, meeting room, expanded parking, two (2) practice/warm up fields, an 8,000 sq. ft. indoor training/multi purpose building, and a memorial garden for all to honor their causes and loved ones.

The Foundation is seeking named sponsors to help complete this worthwhile project for our community and its children.
