DescriptionEdit

The field was completed in 1997 and has led the Pioneer League in attendance every year since it opened.[2] It is named after former Raptors co-owner John A. Lindquist.[3]

In 2008, the Raptors added a new spectator deck large enough for 1,200 spectators, two more concession stands, a Hardball Café, and an additional 2,000 fixed seats to the stadium. A new masonry wall was added, and the chain-link fencing was also replaced.

The field sits at the foot of the Wasatch Range and opens up to a view of the mountains. Both BaseballParks.com and DigitalBallParks.com have awarded Lindquist Field "Best View" in all of baseball.[4]
