Little League Regional Headquarters Construction on Schedule

Construction for the new Little League Southeastern Region headquarters is continuing on schedule, the project’s manager said Wednesday.

Construction of the administration building began this month, and officials now are looking at final design plans for the stadium, said Jay Flesher, owner of Hybrid Corp and the project’s manager.

He gave the update at the Houston County Development Authority’s monthly meeting. The authority approved a routine right-of-way easement for the project.

The administration building and stadium are part of a $5.5 million facility to be located on Snellgrove Drive, off of Cohen Walker Drive.

“It’s a very unique project for this area,” he said. “It’s a really unique design.”

Stadium construction is expected to begin soon. Once it is complete, the stadium will seat 2,400 to 2,500 fans, Flesher said. Hillside seating also will be available, bringing capacity to about 5,000, he said.

Plans call for staff to move into the administration building in January and for the stadium to be complete April 15. The former headquarters was in Gulfport, Fla.

The tight time frame has been challenging, Flesher said. Warner Robins was selected as the site of the new region headquarters in December, and a groundbreaking ceremony was held in May.
