In 1992, Salt Lake City condemned Derks Field, a minor-league
baseball stadium built in 1946 and located on 1300 South. The City
hired an architectural firm to determine the feasibility of
renovating the existing structure. It concluded that
building a new facility was more cost effective. In 1993, the
RDA created a new project area for the sole
purpose of building a new baseball stadium and parking facility.
Smith's Ballpark, formerly SpringMobile BallPark or Franklin Covey Field, has a 15,500 seat capacity and is
the home of the
Salt Lake Bees.
This project area does not generate tax increment.
