LOCAL SPOTLIGHT: BALLPARKS OF AMERICA
Young teams from all over the nation – as well as some international teams – flock to Branson, Missouri in order to experience the state-of-the-art facilities at Ballparks of America.
Here, young baseball players compete against fellow teams all while experiencing stunning replicas of five major baseball stadiums: Kansas City, St. Louis, Chicago, Brooklyn, and Boston. These five fields are 2/3 replicas of their major baseball counterparts, and each field has synthetic turf, sunken dugouts, professional scoreboards, and more. When teams visit Ballparks of America to play on these fields, they are guaranteed at least seven games of tournament play.
Alongside these iconic fields, the team locker rooms are also modeled after professional facilities. Players will sleep in pro-style team suites and have access to private showers. When not competing in a tournament, players will also have access to batting cages, an arcade and game room, and flat-screen TVs for reviewing game footage or playing video games. All of these facilities are designed, first and foremost, to build team camaraderie and create lasting friendships.
The facilities at Ballparks of America are impressive. For meals, there are concession stands throughout the campus, a restaurant and ice cream shop, and a multitude of picnic tables. To create lasting memories, the park also provides on-site professional photography services. And, of course, players are welcome to purchase bats and other merchandise.
Located at 1000 Pat Nash Drive, Ballparks of America is committed to creating fun and memorable experiences for young baseball lovers. Call them today at (417)464-6333 or visit them online here!
