Baseball Stadium

 

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. The new 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.
