The question always comes up as to why does Swanson Park have a gate fee? During the course of the season, Stateline Sports will host the Mid-Season tournaments, league championship tournaments, and All-Star night. The cost of these events is not covered in any player fee that goes to Stateline Sports Group. All of the expenses to run these events including diamonds, umpires and awards are paid for by Stateline Sports Group. The cost for just one of the Mid-season events will cost close to $2,750.00 each. The total cost for all of the extra events paid for by Stateline will cost close to $7,500.00. In addition to the event's extra cost, Stateline Sports Group has to cover the rental and maintenance cost of the diamond complex since they are owned by the Village of Roscoe. We hope this helps to explain the gate fee. Thank You!
