Terrain de baseball Falcon is a baseball stadium located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States. It is home to the Division I Mountain West Conference Air Force Falcons varsity baseball team. Opened in 1957, the venue has a capacity of 1,000 spectators. The field, located in the Rampart Range of the Rocky Mountains, is over 2,100 m above sea level.
In 1976 and 1995, the field hosted the United States Olympic festivals.
In 1991, the establishment underwent extensive renovations. Most notable was the addition of an AstroTurf infield and new drainage systems; these made it possible to improve the ground conditions after the bad weather. In addition, the dimensions of the land have been changed and the canoes have been improved. The land has a 24 foot high fence in the right field. The number of seats has also been increased.
In 2010, the AstroTurf infield was replaced by Sport Turf.
