Howard Johnson Field

Howard Johnson Field is home to the Johnson City Cardinals, a rookie league affiliated with the St. Louis Cardinals. Built in 1956, its stands hold 3,800 people. The most unique attribute of the stadium is the steep, curving bank in right field (click thumbnail photo to enlarge). On long fly balls fans enjoy watching fielders attempt to negotiate the hill and make the out. But what a complete nightmare for the outfielders! Parking is free and tickets are cheap -- so stop by and catch a game. Click here to learn about the namesake of the stadium.

Directions: The ballpark is located at the corner of Legion and Cranberry Streets in Johnson City, TN. From I-26, take exit 23 to East Main. Turn right onto Legion Street, the ballpark will be on your left. Map.
