Victory Field is an extremely small, minor league baseball stadium in Downtown Indianapolis, IN. It’s home to the Indianapolis Colts of the International League. Its located near the intersection of East Washington Street and Michigan Avenue.
The Victory Field is one of the least populated parks within the National League, with just over twelve thousand seats. The majority of these seats are reserved for home team games, which means that the crowd is predominantly local. Victory Field’s capacity was never more than eleven thousand during the season and has stayed at about that capacity during the off-season. Even during the home games, there is little fan traffic, especially during batting practice and other games during the regular season.
Though Victory Field sits on what would normally be a minor league baseball diamond, it is home to professional baseball. There are also a number of minor league baseball games being played in Victory Field during the year. While many major league baseball clubs don’t have teams in Indianapolis during the off-season, there are still plenty of opportunities for fans to see major league baseball in this part of town.
When attending a minor league baseball game, you will notice that the playing field is in an advanced state of neglect. Some of the fields are old and torn up from years of abuse. Some fields feature an outfield bleacher system that can’t hold nearly as many people as it’s supposed to.
When attending a Victory Field game you will notice that the fans are often very loud. Though not necessarily rowdy, they can still be loud enough to distract you from watching the game itself. The crowd is rowdy enough to keep you awake throughout the game. Although many games may only last one or two hours, I’m not sure how many fans have ever heard the concession man ask them to quiet down before they leave the field.
If you’re looking for an incredible game on the field, Victory Field isn’t for you. But if you’re a fan of the Indianapolis Colts and you need a break from all of the NFL action, this is probably the place for you to go. In addition to watching your favorite Indianapolis Colts team play, you’ll also enjoy a few quality innings of baseball.
While this may not be the best field in the majors, if you’re looking for a quick way out of a major league baseball season you might want to check out Victory Field. If you’ve got a little extra time and a little extra money, this is one of the better venues to go to for a baseball game. It doesn’t hurt that you’ll likely find it half-filled during the off-season either.
As you can tell, Victory Field isn’t a great baseball venue, but it’s nice enough for a baseball game. If you have extra time to spare and you want to spend it watching your favorite sports team, this is the spot for you to enjoy the good old American past time in Indianapolis.
