The baseball park is owned by the City of Great Falls and leased to the Great Falls Baseball Club, Inc., which is a non-profit organization. In exchange for maintaining the park and updates, the city requires that the three local high school (American Legion affiliated) teams be allowed to practice and play in the stadium as long as it does not interfere with the Minor League operations of the Great Falls Voyagers. Since the Advanced Rookie League starts late in June, this is usually not a problem.
The three American Legion Baseball teams that play in the park are the Great Falls Chargers AA, Chargers A and Chargers B. The previous names of these teams where the Great Falls Stallions, the Great Falls Electrics, and the Great Falls Chargers. (The programs all merged into one organization thus the new name).
