Firestone Stadium is a baseball and softball stadium located in Akron, Ohio, United States. The stadium was dedicated on July 25, 1925 by Harvey Firestone, the founder of the Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. It was owned and operated by the Firestone company until it was donated to the City of Akron in 1988. It has a seating capacity of 4,576.

From 1999 to 2017, it served as the home of the Akron Racers of the National Pro Fastpitch softball league. The stadium has been the site of the annual Mid-American Conference Softball Tournament since 2008, after previously hosting it from 2002 to 2005.[1]
