The New Prague Baseball Committee, in partnership with New Prague Youth Baseball Association, New Prague Area Schools Baseball program, New Prague Orioles amateur baseball team, and the City of New Prague, are proud to announce the renovation and improvement of New Prague Memorial Park Baseball Stadium. In early 2015, the City of New Prague approved a nearly $1 million Memorial Park Baseball Stadium improvement plan, to include but not limited to: new concession & restroom building, new batting cages/hitting tunnels, scoreboard enhancements, plaza improvements, grandstand improvements, updated field lighting, new bullpens, new net backstop & kneewall, new irrigation system, new dugouts & pressbox, re-grading of the playing surface, new fan seating deck(s), and fencing updates.
These improvements will be executed via a 3-year phased approach, starting in August 2015 and ending in late 2017; work will be conducted around each baseball season. This timeline will allow the improved facility to host the 2018 Minnesota Amateur Baseball State Tournament in late August 2018 (along with co-host Shakopee), but more importantly, it will become a high end, community-based facility for the next generation.
In early September 2015, the New Prague Baseball Committee will formally announce a Capital Campaign to seek monetary and in-kind donations to help defray costs of the project.
It’s truly an exciting time for the Baseball Committee, it’s partners, and the City of New Prague. We hope to showcase the strength of the community as we come together to improve and transform the facility.
Thank you in advance for your support!
