Sportpark Pioniers (Park 21) is the newest and perhaps most exciting ballpark in Europe... built in 2014 as a showcase for the Honkbal Hoofdklasse... the Dutch Major Leagues. The ballpark was built for 12 million Euros and according to Chris Kabout, is part of a 22 million Euro project creating a green area for Hoofddorp. (A Euro when this ballpark was built was about 1.25 to the U.S. Dollar so when it debuted 12 million Euros was the equivalent of approx. $15 million US dollars)
