An Explanation of Field Status

GHLL wanted to explain to everyone the procedure regarding the Field Status for the 2014 Spring Season. Once the GHLL fields have been closed, the fields are closed for the remainder of that day. GHLL does not have the authority to reopen the fields. The closing of the fields is done by the Pasco County Rec Department and unfortunately, GHLL must obey their wishes. Understanding that the fields, sometimes seems repairable from the rain, the decision again, is made by the Pasco County Rec Department, which is who has the final say in the Field Status. Field Status will be communicated here on the GHLL Website and on Facebook once the information is received from the Pasco County Rec Department Personnel.  The status of batting cages will now be listed seperately as they are sometimes usable even though the fields are closed.  Please always be sure to watch the weather when using the cages to make sure that the conditions are safe for the kids to be there.   We hope this information is helpful to all families of GHLL, but if you should still have questions regarding the Field Status, always feel free to contact any of the GHLL Board Members.

GHLL Complex

The GHLL Fields are located behind the Holiday Recreation Complex off of Gulf Trace Blvd.  Gulf Trace Blvd. is West of U.S. 19 between Sunray and Moog Roads.  There is a McDonalds at the corner of Gulf Trace and U.S. 19 to use as a landmark to know where to turn.

After turning west off of US 19, follow Gulf Trace Blvd. past Gulf Trace Elementary.  Turn left at the Holiday Recreation Complex entrance and proceed to the back where the baseball fields are located. 

We have 6 fields at our complex.  3 fiekls with Little League Dimensions (60' bases, 44' pitching distance) that are used by our AA, AAA, and Majors Divisions.  1 field has full-size dimensions (90' bases, 60'6" pitching distance) and is shared by our Junior and Senior teams.  We also have two smaller fields that are used for our T-Ball and A divisions.

Our concession stand is open for all GHLL scheduled practices and games.  GHLL Teams are assigned practice times by the League President.  No practices that are unassigned and not approved by the President of our League are allowed.  Non-GHLL affiliated organizations and individuals that wish to use the fields must reserve them through the Pasco County Parks Department and meet any and all requirements asked of them by the county. 

GHLL has been a proud host of teams throughout our area in many District 12 events and tournaments.  Most recently, we hosted the District 12 Majors All-Star Tournament during the Summer of 2009!
