SB Foresters Must Find a New Home

In just a matter of days the Santa Barbara Foresters will no longer call UCSB home.

The five-time National Baseball Congress champion Foresters must find a new place to play next season as UCSB does not want them using their facility anymore.

UCSB is hoping to improve their field and stadium in the near future.

The field use has been an issue long before this summer season began. The Foresters already cut back some of its home games this year at UCSB.

Pershing Park near Santa Barbara City College could be an option for the Foresters but that field is not in great shape plus recreational softball leagues use the connecting fields during the week.

The Foresters played a few games this year at Westmont which has a great baseball field but the college hosts several camps over the summer. The Foresters could also run into the same issue at Westmont over wear and tear on the facility.

Carpinteria High School has a beautiful field but the fences would need to be moved back to accommodate the Foresters.

The Foresters have been playing at UCSB since the early 1990’s but they have just two home games left after Friday’s 5-1 victory against the Conejo Oaks.

They host the San Luis Obispo Blues on Saturday at 5pm and again on Sunday starting at 1:30.
