History

Victory Field in Indianapolis has been the home of the Indianapolis Indians since 1996. The 12,230-seat stadium opened to replace Owen J. Bush Stadium and cost $20 million to build. At capacity, Victory Field can hold up to 14,230 spectators, and the ballpark’s dimensions are 320 ft to left field, 402 ft to center, and 320 ft to right field.

Victory Field underwent several renovations from 2009 to 2010. The most notable was the addition of a new 6 ½ ft by 120 ft HD display board that spans the entire left field wall.

Since opening with a game between the Indianapolis Indians and the Oklahoma City 89ers on July 11, 1996, Victory Field has hosted many events. The Indians set their home attendance record on July 22, 2000, when 16,168 came out to watch the Indians play the Columbus Clippers. Victory Field has also hosted one Indiana Hoosiers baseball game each year since 2015 and is the home of the IHSAA state baseball finals.
