Salt Lake Bees to move to new stadium in Daybreak

SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake Bees will move out of the Smith’s Ballpark after the team’s lease expires in Fall 2024, the Larry H. Miller Company announced yesterday.

The company will build a new MiLB Triple-A baseball stadium in South Jordan in the Daybreak area. According to the Larry H. Miller Company, the privately financed stadium will serve as a year round entertainment anchor for southwest Salt Lake County.

Construction is slated to begin later this year, and the stadium is expected to open for the 2025 baseball season. Stadium details including location, renderings, and amenities, will be released later this year.

“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,” Said a press release from the Larry H. Miller Company. “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 response to the Bees departure, Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall announced the city’s new Ballpark Next initiative, a contest where residents can submit site concept proposals to city leadership. Cash prizes for winning concept proposals range from $5,000-$15,000.

“This neighborhood was meaningful to our city long before baseball moved in, and we will retain and build on that value long after it leaves,” Mendenhall said yesterday on Twitter.
