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.  The $2.5 million renovation project will include 500 additional seats, upgrades to the grandstand wings, dugout, canopy and press box.  The project is expected to be completed by spring 2019.  Read more here.  We can’t help but to continue to speculate that Mandan (ND) could become a cross-town rival/travel partner for the Bismarck Larks (Summer Collegiate, Northwoods League).

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.
