Harris-Stowe State University Stars Park

A renovation and modernization of the baseball and softball athletic facilities improve players’ and fans’ user experience.

LJC and Clayco designed and implemented a full-scale renovation of Harris-Stowe State University’s baseball and softball complex while working in conjunction with the University’s Athletic Department and the St. Louis Cardinals.

Harris-Stowe State University is home to the historic Negro League’s Stars Park, serving as the field for the St. Louis Stars from 1922-to 31. This renovation and modernization of the baseball and softball athletic facilities improve players’ and fans’ user experience. Improvements include field renovations, irrigation, fencing, dugouts, backstops, bullpens, batting cages, lighting, scoreboards, press boxes, seating for 300 fans (200 for baseball, 100 for softball), and improved parking facilities.

Leveraging support from the St. Louis Cardinals-Cardinals Care organization and the University, this project fosters important community relations while preserving an essential piece of baseball history. 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of Negro Leagues baseball and Stars Park, home to four championship games.
