It was the home of the Decatur Commodores, of the Three-I League originally, and later of the Midwest League, from 1927 through 1974. It was at the southwest corner of East Garfield Avenue and North Woodford Street.

About a year after the end of minor league ball in the city, its mostly-wooden stands were demolished and the site was remade into a softball venue, retaining the name Fans Field.
