News Logo

Wellesley athletes can now play softball on the renovated Lee and Warren fields along Washington Street. 

The new and improved fields allow for regulation playoff games and include team dugouts, storage, a bullpen for warm-ups and pitching practice, as well as a brick spectator area behind home plate, more bleachers, and a solar-powered scoreboard. 

A collaboration between the Town, the Community Preservation Committee, and individual and corporate donors, the project was spearheaded by resident Jill Creevy and many youth softball players. Warren Plaque

In addition to the infield improvements, changes to Lee Field, named for the late Thomas E. Lee a former Town executive, include outfield fencing and major landscaping work that involved planting trees and shrubs and constructing a new wetland area. 

The new Warren Field, named in memory of former Wellesley educator and Wellesley Girls Softball co-founder Diane P. Warren, was previously the Town multi-purpose field. 

Both facilities were officially dedicated on Friday, May 7 in an outdoor ceremony that included Town and School officials, along with the Wellesley High School varsity and junior varsity softball teams, parents, players, and friends.
