Larks Add New Deck
Bismarck Municipal Ballpark, home of the Bismarck Larks (Summer Collegiate, Northwoods League), will have a new, sure-to-be popular summertime feature. Construction of a 2,500 square foot deck along the right field line will be ready for its 2019 debut later this month. The team and the Bismarck Parks and Recreation District teamed to make the project happen. Construction began this week. Read more here. View press release and renderings here.
Mandan Ballpark Renovations Still on Track for July Start
Mandan Veterans Memorial Ballpark ballpark built in the 1950s is scheduled for a much-needed renovation in July.

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.
