There may be some language in the agreement with the foundation which ties the gift to the park being used for softball purposes. Also, there may be deed restrictions on the real estate requiring the property to be used for softball purposes only.

DD has only played there once in 4+ years of TB. There never seemed to be tournaments there which offered any advantages over
the ones held closer to the OKC metro area where her teams have been based out of.
Same here...We're based out of Tulsa and we've played maybe 3 tournaments there in the last 5 years. We have used it fairly often for mid-week practices, though.

Not surprising. There are teams much closer that went out of their way to avoid playing at Savage.

Why cant they share? Do they need to make all the infields grass? Could both LL and FP use the same fields? I think 200 fences would be good for LL too. They got composite bats too!

It's my understanding that it will be a shared-use facility. Multiple sports and sanctions. It was solely USSSA.

If they are taking from girls sports to give to boys sports and not giving the girls suitable, equal, fields it's a violation of Title IX. However, if the fields are under-used by the softball program probably not a violation.
Title IX applies to educational facilities who accept money from the federal government. Unless I missed something I don’t think it applies here.
