INDEX: ith an abundance of versa- tile sporting venues, located just 20 minutes north of Pittsburgh, Butler County, Pa., has become a premier sports destina- tion. We offer over 50 indoor and outdoor sporting venues and numerous options for dining and accommodations. Butler County features a wide variety of baseball fields including a Pirates Charities Miracle League Field and a historic ball- park where former NY Yankees like Whitey Ford and Joe DiMaggio once played. Kelly Automotive Park (formally historic Pullman Park) is home to the Butler Blue- Sox Baseball Club, a prestigious Prospect League consisting of future pro prospects. This historic ballpark seats up to 1,500 fans and has private suites with catering. The UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex is a large, multi-functional venue attracting thousands of visitors nationwide. The facil- ity hosts many hockey tournaments that bring in a volume of teams, families and spectators. The newest venue will be an 18-hole Championship Disc Golf Course at North Boundary Park. The course is predicted to be among the top five disc courses in the world and expected to be ready for play in fall of 2018. In conjunction with other disc golf courses nearby at Moraine State Park and Slippery Rock University, we anticipate the new Championship Disc Golf Course to attract even more tournaments and visitors. We guide clients through the planning process and offer a variety of services at no additional cost.
