High Desert Mavericks (CL) (1991–present)

Heritage Field at Stater Bros. Stadium is a stadium in Adelanto, California. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the High Desert Mavericks minor league baseball team. It holds 3,808 people.

History[edit]

It was built in 1991, when the Mavericks came to the area. Mavericks Stadium, a city-owned $6.5 million facility, opened on April 23, 1991. The green of the baseball diamond sharply contrasts the surrounding desert landscape.

Fan support in the High Desert was a Minor League success story in their first year. In 1991, the Mavericks became the first team in the California League to draw over 200,000 fans in one season. In 1996, the Mavericks drew their one-millionth fan, becoming one of the fastest teams to reach that milestone.

It is known as an extraordinarily hitter-friendly ballpark.[4]

Naming Rights[edit]

For the stadium's first 16 years, it was called Mavericks Stadium. It received its Stater Bros. Stadium name in 2007 when Stater Bros., a supermarket chain based in San Bernardino, California bought the naming rights. In 2014, it was renamed Heritage Field at Stater Bros. Stadium when a naming-rights deal was signed between the Mavericks and the Heritage Victor Valley Medical Group.[5]
