The CenturyLink Sports Complex is home to Hammond Stadium, five additional playing fields as well as the new Twins Player Development Academy. It is also the home to two Twins' minor league affiliates, housing both the Ft. Myers Miracle of the Single-A Florida State League and the Rookie level Gulf Coast League Twins. In addition, the complex features four state-of-the-art softball fields, which are utilized throughout the year by collegiate and community teams. The main stadium was renamed Bill Hammond Stadium late in the 1994 spring season in honor of the Deputy County Commissioner who was instrumental in getting the complex built for the Twins.

The CenturyLink Sports Complex is in the midst of a major renovation aimed at ensuring the facility remains one of the best in Major League Baseball for players and fans. In total, the renovations include $48.5 million in upgrades to the complex -- $42.5 million contributed from Lee County and the remaining $6 million from the Twins.

The first phase of the renovations at CenturyLink Sports Complex was unveiled in February 2014 and included renovations to the Minor League clubhouse and administrative areas, an agility field, an expanded Hammond Stadium seating capacity of 9,300 seats, a new parking lot and the completion of a 360-degree boardwalk and concourse.

The second phase of renovations, scheduled for completion in February 2015, will include upgraded and expanded concourses, improved concessions, renovations to the restrooms, premium seating improvements, the expansion of the clubhouse, a new retail store, new spaces for group seating and renovations to the administrative offices and the media facilities. CenturyLink will install a fully converged network, including expanded wireless local area network (LAN) coverage, fully supported point of sale concessions and ticket-processing technology. In addition, CenturyLink will include several internal upgrades, such as unified communications and IP-enabled phones. All of these upgrades will benefit the Twins fans, staff and players.
