Ogden Raptors (MLBPL) (1997-Present)

Lindquist Field is a stadium in Ogden, Utah. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the Ogden Raptors minor league baseball team. It was completed in 1997 and has led the Pioneer League in attendance every year since it opened.[1] It is named after former Raptors co-owner John A. Lindquist.[2]

In 2008, the Raptors added a new spectator deck large enough for 1,200 spectators, two more concession stands, a Hardball Café, and an additional 2,000 fixed seats to the stadium. A new masonry wall was added, and the chain-link fencing was also replaced.

The field sits at the foot of the Wasatch Range and opens up to a view of the mountains. Both BaseballParks.com and DigitalBallParks.com have awarded Lindquist Field "Best View" in all of baseball.[3]
