Mandan (ND) Ballpark Renovations on Track

Mandan Veteran’s Memorial Ballpark in Mandan (ND), across the Missouri River from Bismarck (ND), will undergo a $2.5 million renovation project beginning next summer.  To date, $1.5 million has already been raised.  Read more here.  As we pondered back in September, could Mandan become a future cross-river rival for the Bismarck Larks (Summer Collegiate, Northwoods League)?  It’s a stretch from a 20,000-population standpoint, and Legion ball appears to be the primary focus, but the far-flung Northwoods circuit does have a huge footprint gap to fill.

Hyde Stadium Renovations Continue

Post 8 Pierre SDPost 8 in Pierre (SD) continues to raise the $1.6 to $1.8 million needed to complete the renovation of Hyde Stadium.  Read more here.  Based on architectural renderings here and here, the refurbished ballpark will include nearly 1,000 seats.  Visit the Post 8 stadium renovation page here.  With a population of only 16,000, it doesn’t appear Pierre would be an expansion target for the summer collegiate Northwoods League, but the coming new franchise in Bismarck (ND) will only be 3 1/2 hours away.
