MILFORD, Ohio (WKRC) - Since the early 80s, Expressway Park in Milford was the place where thousands of area softball players competed and had fun.

On Sunday night, that all came to an end.

The complex is being sold to FC Cincinnati which will replace the softball diamonds with a soccer training facility.

Bob Owens, Park Manager and co-owner, has been at Expressway Park since day one. He's been continually thanked by those who played there.

"It's tough," he said. "I've had a lot of past and current customers come up, a lot of tears."

Softball is still popular, but not like it used to be. At the end, Expressway Park had about 170 league teams a week. At its peak, there were more than double that.

FC Cincinnati's training facility is expected to cost $30 million.
