In 2011, with gifts from Puklich Chevrolet and a Matching Grant from Bismarck Parks and Recreation to the Bismarck Baseball Boosters, a new infield was constructed.



A group of dedicated community volunteers and baseball enthusiasts raised nearly $1.3 million to make additional improvements, including adjustments to the outfield fence, new dugouts and additional practice/pre-game warm-up facilities.



The covered grandstand now has stadium seating for 1,100 (and with movable bleachers, up to 2,000 or more capacity). to allow hosting major events. The new grandstand also includes a new press box, better sightlines, new concessions and new restrooms.



There is a new marquee sign outside the facility and a video board has been added to the scoreboard.



A new entrance/ticket booth is almost complete.



A total of 217 individuals and 139 businesses made these improvements possible.



Signs with a history of the Municipal Ballpark as well as the "Buy a Seat" names on the stadium seats will be completed in the fall 2014.



Bismarck will host the 2015 & 2016 Senior American Legion Baseball Central Plains (Region 6) Regional Tournament. The Senior Tournament (age 19 and younger program) will be played at the newly renovated Bismarck Municipal Ballpark and, in addition to the host team Bismarck Governors, will involve teams from North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa.



Bismarck last hosted the Region 6 tournament in 1966. Bismarck also hosted the 1956 and 1962 American Legion World Series.



July 5, 2013 - The Bismarck Municipal Ballpark capital campaign fund total is $10,000 higher, thanks to a Minnesota Twins Fields for Kids grant. Bismarck Parks and Recreation District received the news this week that Minnesota Twins grant funds have been awarded to help support $1.5 million in upgrades at the ballpark.


The Twins Community Fund's Fields for Kids program provides financial support to improve baseball and/or softball facilities for youth in the Upper Midwest and Southwest Florida. The program makes matching grants to non-profit organizations and local government units that operate baseball and/or softball programs.


Renovations at the Bismarck Municipal Ballpark include a new grandstand with stadium seats, including a new press box, concessions and restrooms. Other improvements include new dugouts, improved site lines, a new entry and a historical display on baseball in Bismarck. The upgrades are scheduled to start in August.


Currently, $1,136,879 has been raised to date. Opportunities still exist for people to “Buy A Seat” at the ballpark, with details available on the park district’s website
