Rub the Rock

Rub the rock outside the main entrance of Security Bank Ballpark to bring good luck to yourself and the RockHounds. The rock comes from the excavation of the stadium and is believed to bring “fun and good times” to those who touch it before the game.

Catcher Statue and Championship Plaques

Check out the statue of a catcher and the championship plaques that accompany it. The plaques commemorate all the biggest achievements in RockHounds history including the club’s six Texas League titles making them a must-see for any RockHounds fan.

High School Football Stadium

High school football is huge in Texas, and it’s no different in Midland where they have a massive high school football stadium right across from the minor league ballpark. Take some time before the game to check out the impressive stadium before making your way into the ballpark.
