About the Park...

     In July 1979, the Avon Lions Club officially began to pursue the construction of a new baseball park. They purchased land directly south of the old park which at that time consisted of a pasture and a small pond.

     Blattner Construction began hauling and moving dirt in August of 1979. After 2 months, underground sprinklers were installed and the outfield was seeded. Infield sod was then purchased and put down by the Avon Lakers.

     The Lions Club then had the fence installed, and erected the signs that currently surround the outfield.

     During the spring of 1980, more landscaping was completed by Lange Trenching. In 1980 and 1981, the dugouts and concession stand were built by the Avon Lions Club, with materials donated by Borgert Concrete of St. Joseph and Avon Lumber.

     In 1988, the new grandstand and bleachers were installed, and in 1991, the press box was built. Last year and this spring the press box and dugouts were remodeled.

     Maintenance of the ball park is shared between the City of Avon and the Avon Lakers Baseball team. The concession stand is run by former ball players and other volunteers from the community.

     The Avon Lakers and the City of Avon are once again proud to sponsor the Region 8C Baseball Tournament. We hope you enjoy the games as well as the facilities at our baseball park. The improvements at the baseball park are accomplished largely through the generosity and efforts of the Avon Lions Club. Much of the remaining expenses are paid from the advertising revenue generated by the programs and other fund-raising efforts undertaken by the Avon Lakers Baseball Club, Inc. The team would like to thanks the Avon Lions, the City of Avon and our program sponsors for the generosity and continuing support of amateur baseball in central Minnesota.
