Helfaer Field

Coordinates: 43°01′49″N 87°58′26″W / 43.030141°N 87.973918°W / 43.030141; -87.973918 Helfaer Field, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is a Little League baseball field located next to Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers.

Costing $3.1 million to construct, the field seats up to 722 people. Built near the infield of the former Milwaukee County Stadium, it retains the old foul poles from that field. The location of former home plate for Milwaukee County Stadium is located in marked batters boxes up from third base.[1] Along the left field concourse, there is a marker to designate where the former Milwaukee County Stadium home plate was. Helfaer Field has dimensions of 200 feet to left, center, and right fields. The fences are six feet high.[2]

The field is named for Evan Helfaer, a part-owner of the Brewers when they arrived in Milwaukee. A foundation in his name provided the funds to build the field.[3]
