According to a company statement, the Louisville Slugger Sports Complex is expected to draw players and fans primarily from a 300-mile radius. It says the center could host more than 11,000 games per year.

A partnership agreement with developers provides Louisville Slugger with naming rights, among other things. The company also will be able to use the facility for marketing events.

The statement didn't give a cost or a final completion date.
