The Olympic Baseball Centre in Athens consists of two baseball stadiums at the Helliniko Olympic Complex. It was the site of the baseball games at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece. The facility consists of two fields. The larger stadium seats 8,700 fans - though only 6,700 seats were made publicly available during the Olympics - and the smaller stadium seats 4,000 spectators - though only 3,300 seats were made publicly available during the games. The facility had to be constructed with significant foreign help in the design, as there were only a handful of dusty baseball diamonds in the whole of Greece before the 2004 Olympics were awarded to Athens in 1997. Construction on the facility was completed on February 27, 2004, and it was officially opened on August 12, 2004, a day before the Opening Ceremonies.
