Firestone Stadium is a historic baseball and softball stadium located in Akron, Ohio, United States.

The stadium was dedicated on July 25, 1925 by Harvey Firestone, the founder of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. It was owned and operated by the Firestone company until it was donated to the City of Akron in 1988.

It is currently the home of the Akron Racers of the National Pro Fastpitch softball league. It has also served as host to the Mid-American Conference Softball tournament on several occasions, from 2002-2005 and again in 2008[1] and 2009, as well as both 2011 and 2012.
