What happened to Sportsplex?

A few years ago the new director of the Columbus-Lowndes Recreation Authority made a pitch to the city/county officials, that we need to invest in a "Sportsplex" complex for our youth. This complex would be a great asset for the city/county. It would bring in ASA and Dizzy Dean ball and much tax money. (And would not require additional alcohol sales!) 


Now we are only going to have a "soggy" soccer complex. What happened to summer youth baseball leagues and summer girls softball? Where are their "Sportsplex" facilities going to be?  


Did I miss something? (I have two grandchildren in the county.)
