Ballparks of the Midwest/West

Ballparks of the Midwest/West

Don McBride Stadium--Richmond, Indiana

Home of the Richmond Roosters of the (Independent) Frontier League. Truly representative of minor league baseball of yesteryear. Has somewhat of a rural flavor. One of the most colorful parks of the midwest.

V.A. Memorial Field--Chillicothe Paints

The Chillicothe Paints (actually named after a type of horse rather than something that you use on your house) play here. The stadium itself is built on the grounds of the local area hospital. The exterior of the ballpark is light red brick.

Oldsmobile Park--Lansing, Michigan

The very popular Lansing Lugnuts (Midwest League) reside here. Capacity 10,000. Built right in the heart of Lansing, this park is representative of many of the newer minor league structures.

Stanley Coveleski Regional Stadium--South Bend, Indiana

Home of the South Bend Silver Hawks (Midwest League). Capacity: 5,000. Sits next to an former auto plant where a car known as the Silver Hawk was assembled. Stadium is rather modern and symetrical. However, because of the urban setting, the park has more of an urban/retro feel to it.

Cardinal Stadium--Louisville, Kentucky

Louisville Redbirds (American Association) used to share stadium with the University of Louisville Cardinals football team. Capacity: 33,500. One of the largest minor league stadiums in all of professional baseball. Built next to the Kentucky State Fairgrounds. Has a very colorful concourse, always feels like you are at the fair. Artificial turf playing surface.

Everett Memorial Stadium--Everett, Washington

Home of the Everett Aquasox (Mariners Afilliate) of the (Class A) Northwest League. Capacity: 2,285. Everett is about a 45 minute drive northeast from Seattle. Extremely cold and wet during many summertime games.
