Categories: Tourist Spots, Arenas & Stadiums
Security Service Field, formerly known as Sky Sox Stadium, is a professional baseball stadium on the eastern edge of Colorado Springs, Colorado. The stadium is the home of the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, the AAA-level affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers Major League Baseball team.HistoryBefore the construction of Sky Sox Stadium, the Sky Sox played on a public field at Memorial Park in downtown Colorado Springs. Sky Sox Stadium was constructed in time for the 1988 season at a cost of $3.7 million and was the home of the Sky Sox for 17 seasons (1988–2004). During that time the Sky Sox won two Pacific Coast League championships (1992 and 1995). Attendance was generally good, but at the end of the 2004 season, facing declining turnout and an assortment of problems that showed the ballpark's age (capped by the center-field scoreboard, on which the ball, strike, and out indicators were non-functional), team executives decided to renovate the ballpark. Construction is ongoing, but some changes are already apparent, such as an improved sound system, a more modern scoreboard with video screen, a new walkway leading to the gates, a banquet facility at the end of the right field concourse, and a readout in the right field wall displaying the speed of each pitch. Along with these changes, the park's naming rights were sold to Security Service Federal Credit Union, a prominent local company and longtime sponsor of the Sky Sox.Along with baseball games, Security Service Field sometimes plays home to local concerts. Security Service Field is also the part-time home of the amateur soccer club Colorado Springs Blizzard of the USL Premier Development League. Security Service Field is owned and managed by the Elmore Sports Group. The facility seats 8,500 for baseball, but the capacity can be expanded to 10,000 for other events.Plan to see Security Service Field and other attractions that appeal to you using our Colorado Springs vacation route planner.

We have been to many games and only once found acceptable food disregarding the expected high prices. The games and entertainment and players are wonderful, but the food is pretty lousy. Or so it seem... read more »
Small ballpark where kids can get up close and personal with baseball mascots while parents get to watch live baseball. The park is really in need of upgrades. The food is terrible (not even worth it ... read more »
We enjoyed our evening at the Sky Sox game. For it being AAA baseball we expected the park to be much larger and nicer but perhaps the Midwest AAA parks are just different than AAA parks in the West. ... read more »
Tonight's game was great and the fireworks were beautiful as always. A great family establishment. Except when it was time to get out of the parking lot...no staff in the lot, total chaos. 1 hr to leave the park and it wasn't even full. Second thoughts about another game. I felt like they left us hanging. One last note...$8.50 for a beer? Really? Might as well go drink at the airport. How about a hometown brewery?
I've always had a great time at the games. They used to have bacon wrapped hot dogs but I couldn't find them last time I was there. One time they launched a T-shirt into the stands and it went over my head but bounced back down and landed in my beer. If you can get tickets for the picnic area they have a free buffet and a nice bar. There's a bigger bar on the other side of the field but the picnic bar feels more fancy because you can only go there if you have picnic tickets.
Lots of fun. Easy access park. Sky Sox players are the minor league players for the Milwaukie Brewers. Inexpensive way to enjoy baseball.
Came here to enjoy time with friends and family, not really because I actually like the baseball experience. It was okay. Food way over-priced and not tasty with no nutrition of course. Thank you very much for working hard to maintain the bathroom and the shaded areas in terms of cleanliness. I appreciate that part very much.
We went as a huge group (100+) and we picked one player-- Orlando Arcia to cheer for hard core that night as a group. It was HILARIOUS. And the team and Orlando played along. We had to leave a little early but ironically, the team played the longest game in SkySox history. They really wanted that win. Anyways, the players were great. The group person who helped us hung out with us and made great commentary. The staff was so great with our antics and even the commentary on the radio or recognized our presence. Overall, it was an unforgettable experience! Oooooooorlando!
