Plant City Stadium is a stadium in Plant City, Florida with a capacity of about 6,000. It was built in 1988 as the new spring training home of the Cincinnati Reds, who had previously trained at Al Lopez Field in nearby Tampa for many years. In 1998, the Reds left Plant City for Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Florida. After the departure of the Reds, Plant City Stadium mainly hosted local amateur baseball and softball games.

In 2012, the stadium became the home pitch for several VisionPro Institute developmental soccer teams, including VSI Tampa Bay FC of USL Pro, VSI Tampa Bay FC of the USL Premier Development League, and VSI Tampa Bay FC of the USL W-League.[1]
