Melaleuca Field is a stadium in Idaho Falls, Idaho. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Idaho Falls Chukars minor league baseball team. It was built during the Pioneer League 2006-07 offseason. American Legion and local high school games are also played at the field.By 2004, the old stadium that used to sit on the same lot, McDermott Field, was outdated, deteriorating, and viewed as an unsuitable baseball venue. In May of that year, the Chukars approached the City of Idaho Falls about a major renovation; the estimated cost was $3.35 million. After the city agreed to allocate $2 million toward the project, the Chukars started a "Step Up To The Plate" fundraising campaign to come up with the remaining $1.35 million. Despite a fundraising campaign launched by the city of Idaho Falls, a sharp rise in anticipated construction costs resulted in a budget shortfall of half a million dollars. Idaho Falls multi-level marketing company Melaleuca donated $600,000 to complete the construction and the stadium was renamed Melaleuca Field on June 22, 2007.The old McDermott Field stadium was torn down on October 30, 2006, and the new Melaleuca Field stadium was dedicated on June 22, 2007. The new stadium includes a seating capacity of 3,400, eight luxury boxes, two large concession booths, and a sponsored hot tub on the right field line.FeaturesThe grandstand includes 1,200 box seats, 1,459 bench seats with backs, eight custom suites with balcony seating, a large press box, two large concession booths, a souvenir shop and various offices. The playing surface is natural grass (Kentucky bluegrass).

  • A very family oriented environment and some decent baseball too. Concessions are very reasonably priced and the line aren't very long.  more »

  • We had a company party here. There was lots of room. Food was pretty good.
  • This was the most amazing place to watch the solar Eclipse. They prepared for more people than came, opened their concession stands, had little booths for kids to do crafts and really thought of families when they opened for the day. I was impressed by the help we received when we needed it and kindness of the locals teaching the kids the crafts.
  • I absolutely love the field. The games are always fun and the food is good. The events held here are a blast and definitely worth attending.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed this MiLB field. There's no parking lot so be prepared to find it somewhere on the streets. But other than that, great intimate setting in the shadows of the LDS Temple to watch a baseball game.
  • Fun time at our company party at the Chukars game. Paul made this the easiest party planning ever!
