Welcome to Don Edwards Park!


Facility History

Don Edwards Park is a five field baseball complex located in Newark, Ohio, built  

originally as one field in 1963 by Don "Gramps" Edwards. The facility has served as the

host of multiple leagues, tournaments and events through the years. As our 

has grown the ballpark has grown to serve the 
needs of the youth of our area.

Our ballpark became the host site of the Babe Ruth World Series in August of 1977.

The first game hosted for that series was between New Orleans, Louisiana and Arroyo

Grande, California. Between the years of 1977 and 2010 we would be the host site of

Babe Ruth World Series nine times. 

In the 1994 and 1995 season the ballpark served as the home park for a semi-

professional team named the Newark Buffalos/Bison. It is currently home to the Ohio

Bison which plays in the the Ohio Independent Collegiate League. In addition to that

The Ohio Bison is a youth travel organization comprised teams in the age divisions  

9U-18U. The name of the organization is a tribute to the history of not only our

ballpark, but our great city! 

As we enter the new decade, and reflect back on our 50+ years of service to the

community we realize that our impact goes beyond the borders of our county and

reflects to the thousands of visitors we have had over the years. We are thankful to be  

a small part of the history of The Greatest Game on Earth, and every year we

anxiously await the first signs of spring!
