Eastwood Field is a minor league baseball stadium located in Niles, Ohio, United States. It is currently the home of the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, a Cleveland Indians affiliate in the New York-Penn League.
Eastwood Field opened for the 1999 season, when the Erie SeaWolves franchise was relocated to Niles upon the granting of an expansion Eastern League franchise to Erie. With an official seating capacity is 6,000, the park was originally known as Cafaro Field, named for William M. Cafaro, founder of the real estate developer the Cafaro Company. The name was changed to Eastwood Field in 2003 to match the Eastwood Mall, a Cafaro property on U.S. Route 422, behind which the ballpark was built. On August 14, 2012, the stadium hosted the 2012 New York-Penn All Star Game.
