Over the summer of 2023, the National Amateur Baseball Federation and the city of Knoxville, Tennessee, reached an agreement to make Christenberry Park the home baseball complex of the NABF.

Through donated funds from the NABF, turf infields on all four baseball/softball fields, new scoreboards, video boards and perimeter fencing were installed as well as a vendor area with shopping for players and families, including multiple concession areas and other improvements.

The NABF  will host sanctioned tournaments and showcases for all age groups from 6U-18U and girls’ softball utilizing multiple parks for a total of 17 fields, all within a 30-minute drive.

Playbook365, MTM Recognition, EvoShield, DeMarini, Louisville Slugger, Wilson, Hoosier Bats, Diamond, Bownet, Baseball Bluebook, and Frazier Insurance already are or have all signed on to be park and NABF sponsors.

Baseball Bluebook will provide online player profiles for every player in NABF events that can be continually updated to help players with promotion and college recruiting. Baseball Bluebook and the NABF YouTube Channel will house NABF video highlights and recorded live streams that can be viewed around the world and on social media. Participating players will have access to all of this content for promotion and recruiting.

The NABF is also working to provide internship and work-based learning opportunities for high school and college students that will provide them a wide variety of experiences in athletics.

The East Tennessee Baseball District, which is celebrating its 25th year with the NABF, will run and oversee the tournaments for the NABF.
