Opened in 2008, the Cypress Mounds Baseball Complex has quickly turned into one of the most recognized and sought-after tournament destinations in the Gulf Coast region. The complex features six uniquely designed, MLB-quality Bermuda grass fields, serves local baseball and softball leagues throughout the year, and holds weekend and weeklong tournaments throughout the summer. Since the complex was built on the old Mississippi flood plain, careful consideration was given in the design process to the need for creating proper sub-bases for the fields and structures, while also carefully laying out adequate storm water facilities. The resulting layout of the storm water management area dictated the outfield angles for two of the fields, allowing for splash homeruns at each park. An enormous entry building holds administrative offices and a pro shop, while an even larger centralized building is home to full-service concessions, arcade, restrooms and a full-service, year-round restaurant with panoramic balcony views.
