1. Strickland Field at Veterans Memorial Park in Weimar

Veterans Memorial Park was built in 1948 and was the first lighted baseball field between San Antonio and Houston. Despite its age, it remains a state of the art stadium.

It is a beautiful park and along with being the home of the Weimar Wildcats, it also has hosted numerous playoff games, Babe Ruth World Series tournaments, the last of which was held in 2012.

Weimar as a city has a great tradition with baseball and the Wildcats have won five state titles and made six state tournament appearances.

2. The Ballpark in Cuero

The Ballpark in Cuero, home to the Cuero Gobblers, is another in the area that stands out.

The ballpark underwent major upgrades in the last decade and has been kept in great shape. It is great place to watch high school baseball. Cuero has made it to one state final, but has not won a state championship.

3. El Campo’s Legacy Fields

Legacy Fields in El Campo is a treat if you have a chance to visit.

Home to the Ricebirds, as well as Little League teams in the area, it may not carry the history of a place like Strickland Field, but it has great amenities and a good playing surface.

El Campo has won three state titles in its school history.

4. Riverside Stadium

Riverside Stadium is an experience to say the least.

It has been open since 1947 and you can see the history in the stadium.

Upkeep is ongoing in the stadium, including renovated locker rooms and a new scoreboard that was put in this year.

The stadium is home to the Victoria Generals, as well as Victoria East and West high schools, UHV, and St. Joseph.

Victoria Stroman won a state championship in 1985.

5. Shiner Starplex

The Shiner Starplex is the home of the the Shiner St. Paul Cardinals and Little League teams around town.

The Cardinals have made numerous TAPPS state tournament appearances and won a number of state titles.

The complex, which was built in 2002, garners many playoff games because of its great location. There are baseball and softball fields with turf infields. It is a nice complex that is very clean.
