Tourist Spot
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.

  • We enjoyed the game at Cheney Stadium. Great variety of concessions, and lines weren't too long, even though the park was quite full. Seats were comfortable, and ushers were friendly.  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.
  • 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.
  • Beautiful baseball field Park. Great chance to see some of the up and coming players and occasionally some of the Pros that have been sent down for extra practice or because they are recovering from injuries. It always feels very intimate watching the games.
  • Great facility to watch a great minor league team. Reasonable tickets and food costs. Lots of places for kids to play.
  • This is always a great place to take the family. Staff is helpful and make sure noone gets too drunk and out of control. The prices for food and beverages is kind of high, but it's not as high as professional sports venues.
