Snowden Grove Park, built in 1999, has set the standard for which all new youth baseball complexes are trying to emulate. This 17-field baseball-only facility possesses many features only previously found at professional stadiums.
Because of its many amenities and locale, Snowden Grove Park has been awarded and continues to host numerous World Series and National Events including the 1999 to 2011 - 10 Year Old USSSA World Series, 1999 to present year - NABF World Classics in the 10, 12, 13 and 14 Year Old divisions, the 1999 thru present year - Dizzy Dean Baseball World Series in the 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16 and 19U Year Old divisions and the 2009 to 2011 year the Global Sports Baseball World Series in the 11, 13 and 14 Year Old Age Divisions.
The development of Snowden Grove Park resulted in the City of Southaven receiving the prestigious Economic Development Award presented by the State of Mississippi for the impact that this park has had on the local economy of Southaven, MS. Snowden Grove Park was awarded the USSSA World Series Host Site of the year in 2000 and was awarded the 2008 USSSA Complex of the Year.
The latest addition to Snowden Grove Park is the Southaven Field of Dreams, a mini complex for handicapped and mentally challenged children and adults. No longer are these special people left out, the Field of Dreams provides the opportunity for them to participate in the great game of Baseball in a safe environment.
Southaven, with its close proximity to Memphis, TN, offers small town charm with "big city" attractions such as Graceland, Casinos, Beale Street, BBQ, Memphis Grizzlies, Memphis Redbirds and the mighty Mississippi River.
