Ballparks of America in Branson

Fenway Park, Busch Stadium, and Wrigley Field are among many small-scale replica fields being built in Branson in 2016.

If you've ever stepped foot into a Major League Baseball stadium, you can probably remember how you felt entering the gates and standing on some of baseball’s most hallowed grounds. Do you remember the excitement of catching your first glimpse of the field through the large atriums? Or perhaps you recall the sound of a bat cracking against the ball or the voice of the umpire calling “SAFE!” to a close-call slide into home plate. For many people, these are unforgettable experiences, and they can soon relive those memories, and make new ones, right here in Branson.

Fenway Park, Busch Stadium, and Wrigley Field are among the crowd of small-scale replica fields being built in Branson in 2016. Ballparks of America, the new development set to open this summer, will feature a large 16-field complex, six of which will resemble America’s iconic parks. The parks will also be home to many restaurants, retail, and dormitories for coaches and players. Hamilton Chang, CEO of Ballparks of America, says the goal is to design and build sports themed “Epcot” here in Branson and should accommodate more than 120 weekly teams during the three month season in the future.


The fields are being built on the grounds of the former “Red Roof Mall,” where developers are re-purposing the structures to serve as the buildings for this new baseball complex.

And there’s no doubt it’ll be a home run.
