GG Facility Photo

The Grizzlies ballpark was built in time for the start of the 2002 season, under the original name of GMC Stadium. It soon changed to GCS Credit Union Ballpark. In 2023, Grizzlies Ballpark was renamed. Grizzlies Ballpark features reserved box seating, lawn seating, party suites, a hot tub suite, and a section of bleacher seating. With the bleacher section added in 2004, the stadium's capacity has increased to 6,000 fans (8,000 expanded).
