Yakima County Stadium is a baseball stadium in the northwest United States, located in Yakima, Washington. Opened 24 years ago in 1993, it was the home field of the Yakima Bears minor league team for twenty seasons, and has a seating capacity of 2,800.

At the northwest corner of the Central Washington State Fairgrounds, it is north of the Yakima SunDome, separated by a parking lot. The elevation of the natural grass playing field is just under 1,050 feet (320 m) above sea level, and it is aligned (home plate to center field) north-northeast.

Singer Bob Dylan played the venue during his Never Ending Tour in 2010 on September 3.

In 2013, Pacific Baseball Ventures, LLC were granted ownership of the Yakima Valley Pippins baseball team of the West Coast League.[1][2] In 2014, the Pippins will fund a $100,000+ renovation to the stadium.[3]
