While players and coaches stay in our team suites, all families and friends of the teams agree to book their lodging through the designated housing provider EventConnect. EventConnect has negotiated and guarantees the lowest available rates with a variety of lodging properties. Through their online booking platform, they allow for teams to hold room blocks and for families to make individual reservations.

Booking through EventConnect is required for teams and groups traveling from more than 75 miles from Ballparks of America. The traveling distance is determined from the submitted address at the time of registration. Each team is responsible to book a minimum of 8 hotel room nights by families and friends for each night of the tournament. Any teams that do not meet the minimum booked hotel rooms are subject to an additional fee due prior to team check-in:

Weekend Tournaments: $400/Team
Weeklong Tournaments: $750/Team

Once your team registers for an event at Ballparks of America, you will automatically receive lodging information from EventConnect.
