New Ballpark Expected to Boost Oregon Jobs

Portland Beavers owner Merritt Paulson has released an economic impact study that shows how his proposed Beaverton baseball park would generate 285 Oregon jobs.

According to, the park would also add more than $20 million in annual economic output across three counties.

The study evaluated the economic impact of the $45 million ballpark, taking into account its construction and the 72 annual home baseball games.

According to the study:

• Construction alone would generate 787 jobs across Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties. It would produce nearly $30 million in income and wages, and generate nearly $100 million in economic output.

• Annually, the stadium will produce 285 jobs, would generate around $8 million in income and wages, and more than $20 million in economic output across all three counties.
