(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Had a non-baseball related event on the 3rd level "Summit Room" and all I can say is that this park is one of the better minor league parks out there. The staff was very friendly and it's an incredibly well-kept park in comparison to others. Can't wait to come to a game when the season starts
  • POOR service, RUDE management. We got 8 club level tickets to watch a game and have a good time. Upon getting checked in and bracelets for drinking I was informed that my "vertical license" wasn't accepted...weird its accepts everywhere else in the world. I have looked through their T&Cs and there was no mention of this rule. I asked to speak to a manager and a supervisor came to speak with me. He was Extremely rude and unwilling to help even though I HAD A VALID LICENSE. We were told multiple lies during the whole ordeal and I ended having to drive all the way home to get my passport. When I returned it turns out they called the police to have me escorted from the building...why I do not know I was cool and collected the whole time. I definitely will not be returning and I will tell all my friends and family to do the same. Very unprofessional, don't expect to receive service that is good when you go here, and don't expect a refund even when they have messed up.
  • Tacoma Rainiers' games are always fun! A small town stadium that is very well built with a lot of amenities. Beer is always cold and the Rainiers' are always a good show!
  • Cheney is a nice spot to catch some minor league baseball. Easy access to the freeway. Some good concessions. And if you can get summit club and the free beer it brings, it's an excellent deal.
  • Large venue with good past-time favorite foods. Drinks are however on the pricey side. Rainier games are know for 7 dollar beers.
