The Best Local Baseball & Softball Fields in Omaha and Where to Eat After the Game

June 14, 2019Add a CommentPosted By

Come spring and summertime, you can think about Omaha without thinking about baseball. Not only are we home to the annual Collegiate Baseball Championship, but we also happen to have several of our own little league teams competing throughout the season.

We rounded up some of the most popular ball fields in the Omaha area where you can play a game yourself or sit back and watch. Plus, we found the best restaurants around each field where you can enjoy an after-game meal. So grab your bats, cleats and appetites because it’s baseball season!  

AllPlay Complex

Built in 2008, the AllPlay Complex is the finest barrier-free sports and recreation complex in the nation! This unique “field” is located in Seymour Smith Park and features a rubber surface and no barriers that are perfect for baseball enthusiasts with disabilities. The complex is free and open to the public but may be closed during certain events so make sure to check their calendar before you go.
