Cheney Stadium, Tacoma

4.6
Cheney Stadium, in Tacoma, Washington, is the home field for the Tacoma Rainiers minor-league baseball team of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. The stadium opened in 1960, and has a capacity of 6,800. It is next to Henry Foss High School and the stadium has an agreement with the school to use the school parking lot for parking.HistoryCheney Stadium is named for Ben Cheney, a local businessman who worked to bring minor league baseball to Tacoma and also was put in control of the project. Cheney Stadium was constructed in 42 working days after the San Francisco Giants had committed to moving their Triple-A affiliate from Phoenix if the city could open the stadium for the beginning of the 1960 season. Construction included light towers and wooden grandstand seats from Seals Stadium in San Francisco. The wooden grandstand seats are still in place today.Cheney Stadium has been home to Pacific Coast League baseball continuously since 1960, in the form of seven teams: the Tacoma Giants (1960–65), Cubs (1966–71), Twins (1972–77), Yankees (1978), Tugs (1979), Tigers (A's) (1980–94), and the Rainiers (Mariners) (1995–present).Notable players who played in Cheney Stadium include Tom Kelly, Juan Marichal, Gaylord Perry, Reggie Jackson, Jose Canseco, Mark McGwire, Jason Giambi, Félix Hernández, Cliff Lee, and Alex Rodriguez.

  • Great Triple A Venue. Convenient to downtown Tacoma and the team is a competitive one! Given it's proximity to the Mariners, it's not uncommon to see some of Seattle's guys rehabbing down here.  more »

  • Always a great time, win or lose. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The concession prices are not bad, but of course higher than eating at home. Fun and relaxed environment. I like how they engage and interact with the fans, the staff that is, not the baseball players, although sometimes they do too.
  • Awesome place to watch a baseball game..... although..... The music is WAY outdated. Its almost as if they are stuck in the '60's when you enter through the doors. Food Prices are WAY overpriced for a local Tacoma game. Parking is horrendous. WHERE IS RHUBARB? I remember coming here years ago and Rhu was ALWAYS around the fans. Now he disappears for innings at a time... Awesome friendly staff
  • I love the classic feel to the park. It is like stepping back to the good old days of baseball. The food and drink options are great and the prices don't break the bank.
  • This is a very nice ball park. Everything in it is for the contribution of the game nothing too fancy nothing too dull and boring. Just perfect for a triple-A ball park.
  • It's a perfect venue to watch a baseball game live with the whole family without the chaos of the enormous stadium in Seattle. Also every seat is much a good seat there really aren't "nose bleeds". Friendly staff too.
