Melaleuca Field, Idaho Falls
(4.4/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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games are also played at the field.By 2004, the old stadium that used to sit on the same lot, McDermott Field, was outdated, deteriorating, and viewed as an unsuitable baseball venue.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).

  • Fun for the family. I go and don't really watch the game, it's fun to just go for the experience and watching my children have fun. 
  • A great place to watch a baseball game. It gets chilly (even during the summer) after the sun goes down so bring a jacket and a light blanket to enjoy the game to the end. 
  • It's always fun to go to Chuckar's game on a warm summer night. The food and atmosphere are so good. Take your family out to the ballgame.

  • A great little ball field that is fun for the whole family. We went for a sponsored function and we got all the hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, and soda we could eat and drink. The tables we could sit at stretched all the way from the guest dugout to far left field. We also were able to sit in the family section that had a great view of the whole game.
  • Had a great time at the ballgame, sat next to a dork that didn't like heckling, but instead of talking to me, he did some passive aggressive yell to his friends about how bad of a human being I am. Just switched seats with a neighbor and had a ball. Everyone else was good sports and was there for a good time. Service was friendly, and quick at the concessions, and the game was fun.
  • Fun atmosphere. Clean and new for a ballpark. Feel like the food prices don't need to be quite so high.
  • A small baseball stadium trying really hard to be big. Has the usual baseball problem, food and drink costs are a bit high.
  • Not a bad baseball field for a small town. Seating is great and the view of the field is perfect from any section in the stands.
