Salt Lake Bees on The Move

On its website, the Larry H. Miller Company, owner of the Salt Lake Bees, announced the Salt Lake Bees will move into a new stadium in 2025. That new ballpark will be constructed in the Salt Lake City area, in Daybreak, a master-planned community in South Jordan, Utah, to be exact.

Unlike many other Minor League ballparks that are funded by local municipalities, the new ballpark will be privately funded.

The construction of the ballpark will start this year, and will be ready before the start of the 2025 season. The Larry H. Miller Company discussed the lease of Smith’s Ballpark, but eventually decided to construct a new ballpark. This new creation saves the costs of upgrading Smith’s Ballpark, so it can meet MLB’s standards.

According to its website, “the Bees look forward to commemorating the next two seasons at Smith’s Ballpark before the current lease expires in Fall 2024. The team is grateful for the long-term legacy of baseball in Salt Lake City, and for the incredible fans and surrounding community that support the team.

The Larry H. Miller Company is grateful for the leadership of Mayor Mendenhall and her team for engaging with us as we evaluated potential outcomes in this decision. LHM is excited about the future of Salt Lake City and will continue to partner with community leaders to enrich and reimagine the neighborhood surrounding the current stadium.”

In 2022, the Larry H. Miller Company acquired 1,300 acres in the 4,000-acre Daybreak development, located in the fast-growing southwest quadrant of Salt Lake County.
Nevertheless, an announcement about the exact location of the new ballpark will be made later this year.

Since the Beloit Snappers and the Las Vegas 51s changed their moniker and looks when they moved into a new stadium, don’t be surprised if the Bees will adopt another name as well.
