Kavanaugh Field was a minor league baseball park in Little Rock, Arkansas. It was the home of the Little Rock Travelers prior to their move to Travelers Field in 1932.

The ballpark opened in 1901, as West End Park. In 1915 it was renamed for former team owner and Southern Association President William M. Kavanaugh, after he had died from a sudden illness in February 1915.

As part of vacating the ballpark after 1931, the property was sold to nearby Little Rock Central High School. The field was converted to football specifications and was renamed Quigley Stadium. The field is west of the school (whose eastern boundary is Park Street) and the school's baseball field. The other boundaries are West Daisy L. Gatson Bates Drive (formerly West 14th Street - north); West 16th Street (south); Jones Street (west).
