The City of Mesa selected W.E. O'Neil Construction Company of Arizona as the Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) for this project. 

Project Schedule

Construction for this project began in December 2013 and will be completed in December 2014.

Project Details

This project consists of strategic renovations and additions to Hohokam Stadium and the Fitch Park Training Facility to accommodate the Oakland Athletics. After renovation, the facilities will serve as the Major League Baseball Training home for the Oakland Athletics beginning with the 2015 Spring Training Season.

The improvements to Hohokam Stadium will focus on brand-specific upgrades to reflect the character and identity of the Oakland Athletics. Entry gate improvements will re-brand the facility and mark the baseball fans' arrival at the stadium. A refreshed exterior skin and stadium concourse will transition to refurbished seating and seating options in the stadium bowl. The home team clubhouse will be remodeled as well as renovating the baseball fields to Oakland Athletics specifications.

Fitch park is the sister facility to Hohokam Stadium and, after the remodel is complete, will serve as the year-round home for the Oakland Athletics Minor League Training and Operations. The improvements to the Fitch Park facilities include renovations to the existing facility as well as increasing the size of the building by 27,000 square feet. The building exterior will be updated to reflect the character and identity of the Oakland Athletics. Ball fields, pitching mounds, and batting cages at the site will be renovated to meet the training requirements of the Oakland Athletics.


Project Funding

The City of Mesa will fund the first $15 million of the project. The City of Mesa and the Oakland Athletics will split the next $5 million of the project costs up to a total of $20 million on a dollar for dollar basis. The agreement caps the City of Mesa financial responsibility at $17.5 million. These expenditures are funded by the Spring Training Bonds.
