New Youth Baseball Complex Planned for Branson’s Near Future

Factory-Merchants-OutletsThe City of Branson approved a $24 million youth sports complex after the final approval of a Factory Merchants Branson mall lease agreement by the Branson Board of Alderman earlier this month.

The mall, also known by the name Red Roof Mall, closed back in 2012 and now Ballparks of Branson LLC has plans to take over the property on Aug. 1 and transform it into a youth baseball complex.

For more information on the project, read the Branson Tri-Lakes News coverage here and here.
