Andre Rodgers Baseball Complex

The original Andre Rodgers National Stadium was located in the Queen Elizabeth Sports Centre, and was constructed in 1966 adjacent to the old Thomas A. Robinson track and field stadium. However, when the government decided to build the new TAR National Stadium with the People’s Republic of China, the Andre Rodgers Stadium was destroyed in 2006. 

Named after Kenneth Andre Ian Rodgers, the first Bahamian to play US Major League Baseball. Rogers made his debut with the New York Yankees on April 16, 1957 and finished his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates on September 30, 1967.  He also played for the Giants, and the Chicago Cubs. When he returned to his home in The Bahamas, he coached baseball.  He died at aged 70 in December 2004. 

In November 2014, there was a groundbreaking event for the new Andre Rodgers Complex.

Once the baseball stadium is completed, Dr Johnson said work would commence on the construction of the new Churchill Tener Knowles National Softball Stadium, which was also demolished to make way for the new National Stadium. The new baseball stadium will be located just across from the NSA – Fast Pitch Softball Field at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex.

In July 2016, the contract signing for the New Andre Rodgers National Baseball Stadium took place.
