Tainan Municipal Baseball Stadium (Traditional Chinese: 台南市立棒球場) is a baseball stadium in Tainan City, Taiwan. Situated in the southern district of Tainan City, it is currently used mostly for professional baseball games, and has been the home stadium of Uni-President Lions since 1990.

History

The stadium was built in 1931 at the site of a baseball field built during Japanese Rule period. The stadium underwent a series of refurbishment in the 70's, and the light poles were installed in 1992 to enable the stadium for nighttime uses. Because the stadium is directly under the flight path of commercial airliners in and out of Tainan Airport, the light poles had their height reduced and had to be placed in front of the grandstands, obscuring the view of certain sections and also make the ball hard to see for outfielderss.

The stadium is currently under the management of Uni-President 7-Eleven Lions organization since 1999, although the ownership is retained by the Tainan City Government. Chiayi-Tainan Luka of Taiwan Major League also occasionally played its home games here during its year of existence, although never officially naming it its home stadium.
