Sixty-year-old Saskatchewan ball diamond to undergo complete overhaul at season’s end

Project will allow community to host major tournaments

April 12, 2024  By Turf & Rec

Unity, Sask.’s Cardinal ball diamond – a storied sports facility for the past 60 years – will be given a complete overhaul after the conclusion of the 2024 season.

Proposals to renovate the baseball field in recent years, to correct a series of rough spots, failed to see execution due to the associated high costs.

However, North West Terminal Ltd. has offered to plant crops north of the diamond and apply profits from the sale of grain toward the diamond’s renovation. The project is being planned in three phases. The initial phase will see the current diamond dismantled for a new configuration. Both the infield and outfield will be grassed, new dugouts will be built and fencing and a new irrigation system will be installed.

The installation of bleachers, washroom facilities and a spectators shelter will be included in the second phase of the project while stadium lighting is planned for the third phase.


The overhauled diamond will allow the community to host major baseball tournaments and events.
