  • Spring Mobile Ballpark / Franklin Covey Fld / Franklin Quest Fld - Salt Lake City UT

    Franklin Covey Field is home of the Salt Lake Bees of the PCL, and hosts many University of Utah games. The Wasatch mountain range provides one of the best views at a ballpark.

        Looking out if you didn't say what city it was I swear it would be an A or AA ballpark- hard to believe that's in a major city with that backdrop!

            Derks Field.

            I attended a Bees game in Salt Lake City in 1958, a few days after their star, Dick Stuart, was called up to Pittsburgh. That game was in Derks Field. Was Derks refurbished and renamed, or is Franklin Covey a different park? Very nice pictures!

              All the stadium is is concrete, brick and steel. No cookie cutters anymore. Now they put some serious thought into building pretty parks all around the country. Even minor league parks. Amazing what a little effort can do.

              Beautiful park, thanks for the pictures.

                It was one of the earlier minor league retro parks, I think it opened in 1994. I believe it's on the same site as the old Derks Field. Beautiful place, the only AAA park I've been to

                    I've never seen an infield like that where instead of the edge between infield and outfield being curved, it's straight angles.

                      it's found back pre-1950 more than today. I'm not a fan of the look, personally

                        Seals Stadium had this feature. Like soup mentioned, I think other classic ballparks had this type of infield/outfield border, but I couldn't find any pics.

                            Great views! I like BYU's as well, but these might be better views.
                            The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.
