Dallas Memorial Stadium is a baseball stadium located in Dallas, Texas. It is the home stadium of the Dallas Deputies baseball team, of the Bull League's American Eagle League East division.[1]

History

The stadium was built in 2012 to accommodate the Dallas Lawmen for the league's 2012 Expansion, and was named in honor of the many Texas-based soldiers and law officers who have sacrificed their lives in the name of freedom and democracy, and has been given the nickname "Hallowed ground" by local media and fans.

Features

The left outfield fences are 17 feet high, creating a challenge for typical right-handed pull-hitters to get home runs. The right field fences are a more conservative 9 feet, giving a close-to-the-action view to right field bleachers fans. At 53,500 seats, it has the highest capacity of any stadium in use in the Bull League.
