Falcon baseball field is a baseball venue located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. It is home to the Division I Mountain West Conference Air Force Falcons college baseball team. Opened in 1957, the venue has a capacity of 1,000 spectators. The course, located in the Rampart Range of the Rocky Mountains, is more than 7,000 feet (2,100m) above sea level.
In both 1976 and 1995, the field hosted the United States Olympic Festivals.
In 1991 the structure underwent major renovations. Most notable was the addition of an artificial turf field and new drainage systems; these allowed for better field conditions following adverse weather conditions. In addition, the size of the camp has been changed and the shelters have been improved. The field features a 24 foot high fence in the right field. The capacity has also been expanded.
In 2010, the AstroTurf infield was replaced with Sport Turf.
