The Shaoxing Baseball & Softball Sports Center has met the standards of the Asian Games Hangzhou 2022 after it passed the examinations of the Games’ organizing committee on March 31.

The Shaoxing Baseball & Softball Sports Center has 5,000 fixed seats in its main stadium. The center is partly covered by a steel membrane that provides shelter for certain activities.

The ripples on the top reflect the characteristics of Jiangnan Water Town. Baseball games will be held there from Sept 12-18, with softball following from Sept 18-24.

After the Asian Games, the stadium will become part of a community that showcases innovative concepts on health, architecture, and low-carbon living.

"People's pursuit of a healthy and high-quality life is consistent with the concepts associated with sports," said Zhu Chengfeng, general manager of Shaoxing Future Community Development and Construction Co. Ltd.

Zhu believes the Asian Games present an opportunity to promote baseball and softball in China, as well as improve the quality of people's daily lives.
