Hammons Field, Springfield

4.8
Hammons Field is a minor league ballpark in downtown Springfield, Missouri, with a capacity of 7,986 plus approximately 2,500 general admission seating. The facility, funded entirely by local businessman, hotel mogul and benefactor John Q. Hammons, is the centerpiece of the midtown development project, Jordan Valley Park, on the corner of Sherman Avenue and Trafficway Boulevard. Completed in April 2004, it is home to the Springfield Cardinals, the Double-A Texas League affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals as well as the Missouri State University Bears.
Hammons built the ballpark before he had a minor league team secured to play in the stadium, though he steadfastly assured local residents it would be the Double-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. He was ultimately able to persuade the Cardinals to purchase the El Paso Diablos franchise of the Texas League from the Brett Bros. and relocate it to Springfield. They became the Springfield Cardinals soon thereafter when the parent club ended its brief two-year affiliation with the Tennessee Smokies of the Southern League.
The stadium is unique due to its baseball specific outbuildings. The stadium currently has two large buildings just outside the right-field walls. The larger of the two serves as a fully furnished indoor practice facility complete with astroturf, batting cages, and a small diamond for drills. The smaller building serves as administration, including General Manager offices, as well as housing both home teams' clubhouses, a cardio workout facility, and the physical trainer's office.

  • It's nice to have a decent ballpark in the area. Clean and well maintained.
  • Me and my family LOVE this stadium. It's very clean and has excellent service. The enviorment is so fun and family friendly. Perfect for date night since they do a kiss cam! Will always recommend to everyone.
  • Excellence is their status in our opinion. Great time! Great Cardinal team.
  • Lovely place to take in a ball game and see the stars of the future. Awesome time for the youngster I had with me. Had a bounce house a some games he could play in between innings. And the food options were just as good in STL. Well maintained and clean ball park that was easy to get in and out of with plenty of close parking options. Great experience.
  • This is such an awesome family experience. So exciting every time. Love the Friday Night fireworks. General admission seats are really pretty awesome. Enjoy yourself for an evening of baseball. Good family atmosphere. I will always go back. Go cards!
