Hohokam Stadium also known as Dwight W. Patterson Field and formerly Hohokam Park, is a park with a baseball stadium located at 1235 N Center St in Mesa, Arizona (the Chicago Cubs' spring training home since 1979). The stadium was built in January 1997 and holds 13,074 people. It replaced an older Hohokam Park built in 1977 at a location just east of the current stadium.[2]

It is the home of the Mesa Solar Sox of the Arizona Fall League. Hohokam Stadium has the largest scoreboard in the Cactus League, measuring 12 by 16 feet. In 1999, the Cubs established a Cactus League single-season attendance record. They drew 171,681 fans for its 15 home games, an average of 11,445 people per game. The stadium hosted the 2010, 2011, and 2012 Western Athletic Conference Baseball Tournaments.[3][4][5]
