History

The complex was developed in 1992 and was a game changer for the softball community.  Housing nine lighted softball fields capable of accommodating youth fast-pitch to adult men’s slow-pitch programs, WCSC quickly became a destination facility.  The complex has served two primary roles over the last 20+ years. It is the host venue for the City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department Adult Softball programs where over 800 athletes play nightly over two seasons, and it is a tournament destination for all varieties of competitive softball generating $2.5 million annual economic impact. 

WCSC has been the host for the NCAA Division III Softball Championships, NCHSAA Softball Championships, PONY Championships, North Carolina State Games and the NCSU, Shaw University and St. Augustine University Softball teams.  In total, this complex hosts 36-40 weekend tournaments in addition to PRCR spring/fall programs.
