People celebrating the opening of a new little league complexBernalillo County and the North Valley Little League on March 28 celebrated the grand opening of the Edward C. Sandoval North Valley Little League Complex, located at 4007 Edith Blvd. NE. The complex was named after former state Rep. Edward C. Sandoval, a long time legislator and advocate for the North Valley and especially the North Valley Little League. The new baseball complex features four new baseball fields, dugouts, batting cages, parking and other amenities. The new park was built on vacant land the county already owns, and will provide a permanent home for the North Valley Little League.

Sandoval, an avid baseball fan, has a long history with the North Valley Little League as a parent, manager, coach and mentor.

“Thanks to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved, the North Valley Little League now has a permanent home,” says County Commissioner Debbie O’Malley. “Bernalillo County is proud to complete this wonderful project and make this opening day one of the best ever for the North Valley.”

“This is all for the kids. For the whole North Valley Little League family,” says North Valley Little League President Mary Werner.

The complex was named after former state Rep. Edward C. Sandoval, a long time legislator and advocate for the North Valley and especially the North Valley Little League.

“I am so honored and humbled to have this complex named after me, especially because it’s not a government building, but baseball fields where our children and families can play and compete,” says former state Rep. Edward C. Sandoval.

Funding for the new complex came from various sources:  

  • $2 million from the county’s general fund, approved by the County Commission

  • More than $1.2 million from the 2012 general obligation bonds

  • More than $1.5 million in state capital outlay funds.
