History:

Built in the late 1990's as one of the centerpieces of Oklahoma City's original MAPS initiative, the Bricktown Ballpark opened in 1998 as the home of the re-branded Triple-A baseball team, the Oklahoma City Dodgers. In its life, the park has carried multiple names as a result of corporate naming rights. First, it was the Southwestern Bell Bricktown Ballpark, then simply the SBC Bricktown Ballpark before a merger with AT&T in 2006.

It was known as the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark until 2011 when the company opted not to renew the agreement. New RedHawks owners dubbed it RedHawks Ballpark for a short time, and it is now the Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Of course, any kind of "official" name matters little to Oklahoma City residents, who typically refer to the park as the Bricktown Ballpark or simply and affectionately "The Brick."

Style & Amenities:

Constructed in the style and tradition of older baseball playing fields, the park is one of the more charming venues in minor-league baseball. It seats just over 13,000 fans and features private suites and restaurant seating. Outfield dimensions are 325 feet to both left and right fields, 400 feet to straight center.
