Prospect Meadows is a proposed 17-field baseball and softball complex northeast of Marion. The complex

would host local league play and weekend tournaments, drawing teams from across the Midwest.

The complex is expected to generate $25 million in direct spending in the area each year. It is also expected to create 200 full- and part-time jobs with an annual payroll of more than $500,000.

Located just south of County Home Rd. and east of Highway 13, the over 120-acre, $13.7 million complex will feature 17 fields—including one Miracle Field, specially built for people with disabilities.

The project is unique to Marion and positions the community and metro area as a destination for sports tourism. It also demonstrates regional collaboration – with involvement from multiple cities, Linn County, Linn County Conservation District and Perfect Game USA.

With league tournaments and tournament usage by Perfect Game USA, the Cedar Rapids-based scouting firm, organizers expect more than 60,000 out-of-the-area visitors each year for games, filling 80,000 hotel room nights due to extended stays. More than 120,000 people are expected to visit the complex annually.
