History: The dedication of Drew Park Softball Complex was held on July 10, 1972, by the Mayor of Jacksonville, the Honorable Hans G. Tanzler, Jr. The four-diamond city complex was named after Jack Drew, a Jacksonville native and assistant city engineer for over 19 years. Jack Drew was a softball player in the Recreation League of Jacksonville for over 20 years. Among his greatest softball accomplishments was having pitched the first perfect game in the city leagues. His pitching record includes four perfect games, ten no-hitters, and over 25 one hitters. The softball complex, at the corner of Barnes and Parental Home Roads, has hosted numerous men`s and women`s national and regional softball tournaments.
