Construction is set to begin on the Las Vegas valley’s first 90-foot baseball diamond four-plex at 7929 Mountains Edge Parkway near Buffalo Drive.

Clark County commissioners broke ground Wednesday at 10 a.m. on the Desert Diamonds Baseball Complex on 25 acres of land next to Mountain’s Edge Regional Park. The facility will feature four adult baseball fields, natural turf, lights bleachers and sun shade.

“This is going to be an incredible addition to the Clark County Department of Parks and Recreation’s sports field system,” said Commissioner Susan Brager, who represents the area where the complex is located. “This will be the only complex of its kind in Southern Nevada, having four 90-foot baseball fields in the same complex.  Desert Diamonds will be capable of hosting NCAA Division 1 baseball events and the local high school state and regional playoffs.”

The sports complex is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
