SFU’s spanking new Beedie Field baseball facility is ready to play ball. The $1-million field, made possible by a $500,000 donation and a pledge to match up to $250,000 more from the Keith and Betty Beedie Foundation, was officially opened at the Burnaby campus Sept. 26. Local construction magnate and noted philanthropist, Keith Beedie, threw out the ceremonial first pitch, which was followed by an alumni game and a homerun derby. The opening of the new facility between Terry Fox Field and the Vancouver Whitecaps training facility (Field 4) coincides with the 20th anniversary of SFU’s softball program. Before joining the NCAA Division II Great Northwest Athletic Conference this year, SFU softballers won four National Association Intercollegiate Athletics championships, in 1999, 2003, ’05 and ’10.
