Duane Banks Field is a baseball stadium in Iowa City, Iowa, United States. It is the home field of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes college baseball team. The stadium holds 3,000 people and opened in 1974. It is named after former Iowa Hawkeyes baseball coach Duane Banks. The field was renamed in honor of Banks in 2001. The school has added lights to the field recently, and some high school games are also played there.[1]

Following the 2010 season, the facility received a new playing surface. Other renovations included new batting cages and increased dimensions and foul territory space.[2]

Events[edit]

The venue hosted the 1990 Big Ten Conference Baseball Tournament, won by Illinois.[3]
