Recently "Ballparks of the Ozarks" owners Bob Ramsey (Emmy award winning St Louis sportscaster) and Jeff Vernetti (career radio professional and owner of two indoor baseball training facilities and a baseball training company specializing in camps and clinics), met with Camden county officials and residents. The meeting was near their 230-acre proposed development site to discuss their state-of-the-art athletic complex made up of 20 fields for youth baseball and softball.
The new park would be designed to bring in youth teams from all over the country. New visitors could potentially bring millions in revenue for the Lake and the complex could generate 10 to 15 full-time jobs and 80 part-time jobs. The project offers a unique opportunity to provide direct and indirect impact to the Lake of the Ozarks region. Currently, Lake of the Ozarks is recognized as a lake destination resort area that is reliant on economic activity on weekends during Memorial Day through Labor Day.
