Opened in 2003, Isotopes Park is considered one of the finest facilities in baseball, incorporating state-of-the-art amenities with traditional charm and intimacy.
In addition to the Isotopes, the ballpark serves as the home of the University of New Mexico Lobos, for whom it is annually recognized as one of the best facilities in college sports.
With a capacity of 13,279, Isotopes Park, affectionately called "The Lab," features 11,124 seats, all of which come complete with chairbacks and cup holders.
Beyond the right field fence is the Creamland Berm, a popular place for families to stretch out on a blanket and enjoy some baseball on a starry southwestern night, while nestled behind the bullpens in left is the McDonald's Picnic Pavilion, which can accommodate up to 425 people in four tiered seating areas.
The kids are taken care of at Isotopes Park as well, with the Ozone beyond the batter's eye in center, an ideal spot to celebrate birthdays, and the Fun Zone behind the berm in right featuring games and carnival rides for "kids" of all ages.
Isotopes Park stands in the exact same spot as where historic Albuquerque Sports Stadium stood from 1972 until it was almost completely razed in 2002. Some remnants from the old ballpark can still be found at The Lab, including the foundation of the main seating bowl, a pair of concrete retaining walls near each dugout, and of course, the trademark baseball that stands sentry on the corner of the University and Avenida Cesar Chavez.
