New PREMIER Softball Complex provides big dividends for Watertown

PREMIER's gift of $500,000 to the City of Watertown in summer of 2017 paved the way for the construction of a new, state-of-the-art softball complex for the community. With five regulation diamonds, the new complex enables the hosting of local, state and regional tournaments and provides big dividends for the local hospitality industry.
