The stadium is located just northeast of downtown Grand Junction in Lincoln Park. The ballpark is adjacent on its west side to Ralph Stocker Stadium.

Renovations

In June 2011, both Suplizio Field and Ralph Stocker Stadium underwent an $8.3 million renovation project to replace the aging original concrete bleacher section along the first base line at Suplizio, along with the original bleacher section and press box on the west side of adjoining Ralph Stocker Stadium, with a new section that includes new seating for both venues as well as a new two story press box and handicapped accessible mezzanine level which was ready for use by May 2012.

Awards

  • Colorado Field of the Year in 2009 by Colorado Sports Turf Managers Association
