Coastal Park has went through many major upgrades including installation of a major league spec clay mound, brick dugouts, brick backstop, addition of speakers, addition of brick walk ways and batting cage.
Hurricane Ike came through in September 2008 and destroyed all fencing/backstops/dugouts that existed. The turf had all of the crumb rubber removed and some minor bubble holes that aired out and the outfield actually benefitted from the water. After Hurricane Ike the dimensions to the park are as follows 321 to Left Field, 378 to center field and 314 to right field. With wooden bats and constant South Wind blowing in there were virtually no home runs or close encounters to home runs. And with the easy hops on the turf Coastal Baseball Park was turned into a pitchers park. Crumb rubber has slowly be refilled and the park seeks to be more offensively post hurricane Ike.
The field was built with Progreen Turf Infield which is synthetic and weather resistant this will limit rainouts. The Turf is very similar to FieldTurf. It was used on the practice football fields of the University of Arkansas. Currently there is only one field at Coastal Baseball Park, and lights have be purchased with proper funding lights might be installed in late 2008 or earlier 2009.
Coastal Baseball will host games for various Semi Pro, Adult and High School Leagues and will be main field for National Baseball Congress League of Houston in Summer of 2008. Coastal Baseball Park served as the home of the Houston Apollos, League City Hornets, Mykawa Hawks and SouthBelt Sox. With games played on the weekends in doubleheader format. There will also be monthly home run derby's for those who can swing for the deep fences.
There will be 4 tournaments a year at Coastal Baseball Park.

Construction on Coastal Baseball Park was started in December 2007 and completed in May 2008 (Photos 1), (Photos 2), (Photos 3), (Photos 4). The design was for an artifical infield with a nautral grass outfield that required almost no maintance but stayed at a high playing level. Fieldturf was acquired from the University of Arkansas Football practice facility that was being sold, the turf was transported to Houston and installed on a level rock/sand fillament base. It was seemed and hash marks and numbers painted into the field had to removed. The base areas were painted orange. The mound is a composition mound that has no holes and needs no maintance. Concrete was installed around the dugouts and around the back of the field for a walkway. The first league was played at Coastal Baseball Park in May 2008-July 2008, 48 games were played at Coastal Baseball Park. In future there plans to be state of the art bullpens designed as well as possible a batting cage area.
