LAKE OF THE OZARKS – Midwest Regional Bank is financing the Ballparks National construction project, setting the stage for opening day.

“We are thrilled to be a part of this project,” Michael F. Bender, Chairman and CEO of Midwest Regional Bank, says. “We believe that American communities are strengthened by ballparks where people come together to support kids and to build relationships with one another. We applaud Ballparks National for their vision and look forward to the opening pitch.”

Founded in 1894, Midwest Regional Bank has a 125-year history of underwriting progress in the communities it serves. Known as “The Bank of Tradition and Progress”, MWR Bank offers the personal, tailored service of yesterday coupled with today’s cutting-edge technology. Midwest has 10 locations in Missouri and additional offices in Arizona, Colorado, Florida and Illinois.

“We couldn’t be happier to be in business with Midwest Regional Bank,” Ballparks National General Manager Jeff Vernetti said. “They believed in our vision and business plan from the beginning and valued the amount of jobs our project will create. They were very easy to work with from start to finish and will be an outstanding partner for our project.”
Ballparks National is located adjacent to Highway 54 just west of Camdenton. The state-of-the-art facility will host baseball tournaments for teams of players’ ages 8-15. Support facilities in the first phase of the project will include batting cages, concessions, a full-service bar and one-of-a-kind seating. The park will draw players and their families from around the nation.
