NorBrock Stadium is a professional-sized baseball field located at the McArthur Island Park in Kamloops, British Columbia, in Canada. It was built as a 1967 Canada Centennial project and seats approximately 1,500 spectators.[1][3][4]

It hosts the annual Kamloops International Ball Tournament, which involves both Canadian and American teams, every July.[3]

In 2021, the Kamloops Northpaws will play collegiate summer baseball at Norbrock Stadium in the West Coast League.[5]
