The official opening of Field of Dreams takes place Thursday at 3 p.m. in the baseball building behind Norbrock Stadium.
The new indoor facility will allow Kamloops Minor Baseball Association teams to practise any time of the year.
The cost of the 5,000-square-foot facility is around $500,000, part of which has been taken care of by a $100,000 loan from the city. There also was a $75,000 grant — to be paid over five years — from the Kamloops Blazers Sports Society's Sports Legacy Fund, and various in-kind donations.
The KMBA hopes Field of Dream's operating costs will be covered by fees raised from user groups — KMBA fees, along with other sports groups looking to rent.
