North Greenwood Ballfields to be Named After Bucs

The North Greenwood ballfields will be named in honor of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A groundbreaking ceremony is planned for Tuesday, Sept. 4.

One field is nearly ready and the groundbreaking for another is on the way.

When both pieces of the North Greenwood recreation valhalla is complete it also will feature a new name - Tampa Bay Buccaneers Field.

Sure the team plays at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, however, the $300,000 cost for the field in Clearwater's hardscrabble North Greenwood neighborhood is partially funded through a grant from the NFL and Clearwater for Youth.

The project added lights, irrigation, dirt, grass and uprights to a former parking lot near Jack Russell Stadium.

The groundbreaking ceremony is planned for Sept. 4.

Just about a , the new field adjacent to the the recently expanded  and r is nearly ready for use.

The two-part project includes the full-size, lighted field capable of use for soccer or football. The second part of the project adds the additional practice facilities to the site.
