Prep Baseball Tournaments set to manage operations at Wichita's new 'Champtown'

By Prep Baseball Staff

WICHITA, Kan. (June 21, 2024) – Ground broke on ‘Champtown’ on June 14 in Park City, Kan., an 160-acre project coming to the community north of Wichita in the near future, which will include an eight-field baseball complex that will be managed operationally by Prep Baseball Tournaments. While many of the project’s features won’t be ready until 2026, there’s the chance baseball can be played at Champtown as soon as next summer.

While baseball's headed to the new complex, the site will also attract visitors with an $100 million aquarium, a butterfly conservatory, a retail store, and several quick-service restaurants.

Champtown's baseball complex will feature eight fields and a stadium, promising to become a premier destination for youth and high school-aged baseball and softball events. Prep Baseball Tournaments will provide its wealth of facility and event management, in addition to its prowess as a trusted scouting service with a network of scouts that spans the country.

Prep Baseball Tournaments’ involvement ensures that Champtown will offer a premier baseball experience, drawing on the company’s successful management of other major complexes such as the 400-acre, 26-diamond Grand Park complex in Westfield, Ind., as well as the state-of-the-art LakePoint Sports destination in Emerson, Ga. Prep Baseball has also increased its presence in Kansas significantly over the past five years, as it oversees the Creekside and Homefield complexes in Kansas City.

The company’s tournaments are not limited to the aforementioned sites either, as Prep Baseball facilitates various tournaments across the entire country, with over 15,000 travel teams participating in its tournaments this summer alone.

"We're very excited about the opportunity to bring quality baseball and softball to Champtown's complex," said Blake Hibler, President of Prep Baseball Tournaments. "From our youth leagues, to showcase events, to our national tournaments, we can't wait to continue to add to the footprint we have in the state of Kansas. We're eager to work with Park City to help grow its baseball and softball scenes for many years to come."

Originally founded in Illinois, Prep Baseball Tournaments has grown to become one of the nation’s most respected independent scouting services. The company provides comprehensive coverage across the U.S. and hosts hundreds of events attended by over 800 college and pro scouts. Prep Baseball Tournaments is dedicated to hosting the best talent at events of the highest quality and care, all while creating opportunities for those players to excel, and this new partnership with Champtown is an exciting extension of that mission.
