Nutrabolt Stadium, (formerly Travis Field, Brazos Valley Bank Ballpark and Cellucor Field) is a ballpark located in Bryan, TX and home to the TCL Brazos Valley Bombers and the PDL Brazos Valley Cavalry soccer team. It has also been used by Texas A&M Aggies baseball on several occasions since it opened in 1947.[1]

History[edit]

Travis Field was the former home to the Bryan Bombers who were part of the Lone Star League from 1947–1948 and the East Texas League in 1949, followed by the Bryan Sports of the East Texas League in 1950, Bryan Majors of the Big State League in 1953, and the Bryan Indians of the Big State League in 1954.[2]

Texas A&M Aggies baseball team played in the 1959 District 6 playoffs against the Arizona Wildcats at Travis Park because the Bryan stadium seated more than Kyle Baseball Field. Texas A&M lost two games in the double-elimination playoff, both 1–0, to the Wildcats before overflow crowds of 6,000.

From 1972–1975, Texas A&M had to play home games at Travis Park in downtown Bryan, as school officials had taken the baseball stadium (Kyle Baseball Field) away during the expansion of Kyle Field. The Aggies returned to Kyle Baseball Field for two complete seasons before Olsen Field opened in 1978.

Cellucor Field is currently used by the Brazos Valley Bombers of the Texas Collegiate summer league. Brazos Valley Bombers in 2007.[3]

In January 2017, it was announced that USL PDL soccer club Brazos Valley Cavalry would play their games at the stadium.[4]
