Clearwater High, SPC Baseball Teams to Share Home Field
Jack Russell Stadium is being remodeled as a result of a community partnership.
CLEARWATER – The historic Jack Russell Stadium in Clearwater will now be the home baseball field for both Clearwater High and St. Petersburg College as a result of a community partnership.
The historic stadium was built in 1955, and is currently being remodeled to provide an outstanding baseball facility for the county’s student athletes. When completed, there will be a new club house, bleachers, score board, bullpens, field and much more.
The city of Clearwater, Pinellas County Schools, Clearwater High, St. Petersburg College, CHS Batter-up Club, the Philadelphia Phillies, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Tampa Bay Rays and Clearwater For Youth are all key stakeholders and have made contributions to the stadium upgrades.
Renovations to the stadium, 800 Phillies Drive in Clearwater, are not complete. However, Clearwater High hosted its first home game there Friday (March 3) when the Tornadoes were scheduled to play the Sunlake High Seahawks from Land O’ Lakes. A ribbon cutting ceremony was scheduled to take place before to the game.
