It is used primarily for baseball. It is the home of the Lethbridge Bulls, a Western Major Baseball League team, and was the home of the Lethbridge Black Diamonds of the Pioneer League. The ballpark has a capacity of 3,000 people and was opened in 1975.

The City of Lethbridge renamed the stadium from Henderson Stadium in 2008, after it signed a 15-year agreement with Spitz, wherein Spitz received naming rights for that period and would provide $500,000 for renovation or upgrades until 2013.[1]
