In 1998, long time Issaquah Little League member Terry Dodd coordinated an agreement with the Issaquah School District to develop baseball fields on the swampy, blackberry-infested land between Issaquah Valley Elementary and the Issaquah Schools District Administrative building. Issaquah Little League (ILL), with the help of a grant from King County, community business contributors and local volunteers, built the two fields. Play began in the spring of 2000. ILL is fully responsible for the maintenance and administration of the fields, and in return has priority use of the fields. Issaquah Little League's Dodd Field is a truly generous and brilliant asset for our community!
Issaquah Little League's volunteers have taken great pride in maintaining and improving these terrific fields, with upgrades of sprinkler systems, fencing, bleachers, batting cages, landscaping and pathways. In 2011, synthetic turf infields were installed, ensuring more reliable play during our wet spring season, and a pathway of commemorative bricks leading from the parking lot to the fields was added.
