Bowen Field

Bowen Field

 

Bowen Field was dedicated on May 11, 1939, after the popularity of the professional Bluefield Blue-Grays prompted the construction of a first-rate ballpark next to the City Park and the fairgrounds, sitting right on the Virginia-West Virginia line. It was unique upon its constuction, having an all-dirt infield and outfield. 

A devastating fire destroyed Bowen Field in 1973. The office was the only building untouched by the flames. A new concrete stadium was promptly build, as it stands today. Renovations, under the direction of Bluefield Baseball Club President George McGonagle, have greatly enhanced the complex, with the addition of a tunnel building, which houses two batting cages and a weight room. Over $3 million have been spent on Bowen Field improvements since 1989.
