LAKE OF THE OZARKS – As work on the lake’s newest attraction continues, local companies have been selected to provide vital field and facility grounds keeping and technical support for Ballparks National.

Ballparks National General Manager Jeff Vernetti says TurfMark Services and Kee IT Services will be important partners as opening day nears. “Partnering with regional companies is an important initiative for us and we are thrilled to be in business with these organizations,” Vernetti said. “They are leaders in their fields and their professionalism fits well with our commitment to quality playing surfaces, safety and internet connectivity for our players and guests.”

TurfMark president Mark Mathews says he is dedicated to providing the best playing surfaces possible. “We will draw on our expertise to deliver exceptional surfaces that will enhance the Ballparks experience,” Mathews said. “We are committed to this project and appreciate the confidence placed in our company by BPN ownership.” Bob Ramsey, Ballparks National Director of Baseball Operations, says one of the keys to success will be providing the very best youth playing conditions in the country. “TurfMark will allow us to realize that goal. Their experience sets the industry standard and their commitment to excellence will allow us to exceed it,” Ramsey said.

Jeremy Kee of Kee IT Solutions is looking forward to building technical infrastructure at the park. “This state-of-the-art ballpark deserves state-of-the-art technology and we are going to provide that service,” Kee said.
