Entrance to Patriot Park at 4511 East 56th Street.






Looking into Field 1 from the center of the four field pinwheel.



Field 1 is the only diamond with a full length portable mound with the other three diamonds having clay mounds.  The portable mound can be moved back to expose electrical plug-ins for pitching machine use.  Each field has covered dugouts and bleachers.



All fields feature covered team dugouts with their own enclosed bullpen.



Spacious dugouts with bat and helmet rack.




Available seating for the official scorebook keeper and scoreboard operator.  Close to both dugouts and the plate umpire.





Walking into the center pinwheel area heading to watch a game at Field 2.



Large dugouts to handle the deepest rosters.  Aluminum benches with top shelf and underneath storage areas.



Bullpens have turfed in home plates and enclosed for the pitcher to focus on warming up before taking the mound.



Best seat in the house for the official book and scoreboard operator!


Beautiful playing surface with a great view of the Central Nebraska Veteran's Home.  Scoreboards have count down timers for contests that have a time limit.


All fields have 225' distance fences from foul pole to foul pole.  Fields 2, 3, & 4 have clay mounds.




Looking into the plate area from the pitching mound on Field 2.





Looking into Field 3 that features an air-conditioned press box for the official book keeper, scoreboard operator, and the game announcer.



Brick dugouts with pro-style benching and larger organizer for helmets and bats.



Helmet and bat rack organizer with a dugout garbage can conveniently located.



Bullpen area for pitchers.



Fantastic view into home plate from the pitching mound.



Full-sized scoreboard with flag poles in left center field.



Aluminum bleachers with cover to cheer for your team.



JUST A GREAT VIEW!  One of the most important features at Patriot Park is that all playing fields have a gravity flow drainage system.  Rain drains away from the infield into the underground drains that run along the fencing in front of the bleachers, dugouts and press box.  The outfield flows the water away to the warning track areas.  This allows for greater possibilities to play ball after rain.  The Colorado Gold infield mix is soft and absorbent for great play!



Field 3 has berms just beyond the left and right field fences.  This is a great area to watch the game from your favorite portable chair overlooking the fence into the field.

Looking into Field 4 from the center of the pinwheel.



All dugouts have their own bullpen with a straight path through the dugout gate to the mound. 



Great path to walk up to the plate and hit.



Spacious dugouts with a great view for your game.



Scorer's table is close to the umpire to make for great game flow for the players.



Looking into Field 4 from the overflow parking field area to the east.



Patriot Park has 330 paved angle parking slots.



The baseball bollards mark the drop off and pick up area by the handicap parking area in front of the concessions and restrooms building and flag poles.



There are two overflow parking areas.  This location by the outdoor batting cages is a great spot to park in and then set up your pop-up shelter area in the grass outside the parking area.



The second overflow parking area is to the east of Patriot Park and closest to Field 4.  This spot is excellent for anyone pulling a trailer or camper.



Patriot Park features four hitting tunnels for hitting practice.  The cages are fenced off to keep others safely away from the netting with posted rules.



Each tunnel is equipped with an L-screen.



Home plates are turfed in and any worn out batter's box turf is replaceable.  



Patriot Park has a large shop building with a caring team to maintain the high quality of the park.



Infield mixes are stored and ready to go when needed for grooming.



The playground area is a newly added feature for the 2019 season.



Large area with a deep bed of wafer chips down inside the circular playground.



Benches to sit, relax, and observe the kids playing.



The umpire's room is air-conditioned with a refrigerator, hanging clothes rail, and furniture to take care of the game officials.



Restrooms are located in the building between the four baseball and four softball diamonds.



Men's Restroom.



Air-conditioned and clean restrooms.



Women's Restroom.



Air-conditioned and clean restrooms.



The concessions area is located in the center building on the northwest corner.



Here is the menu from the 2019 season for the best youth baseball complex concession stand west of the Mississippi!



There are twelve picnic tables under the shelter area to enjoy a Patriot Dog and a pop.

New to Patriot Park for the 2019 season is the Brad Bowman Field.  It is designed for children and adults with special needs.  It's the home for Challenger Baseball and TOPSoccer.  The field is a great place for kids to play a wiffle ball game when not being used by TOPSoccer and Challenger athletes.



The fence distance is 125' from foul pole to foul pole.

PLAY BALL!  Wiffle Ball!



Pets are allowed at Patriot Park.  This pet station is located across the sidewalk from the drinking fountain in the center of the baseball diamonds.



Please note these signs by the gate entrance to the dugout area.  This allows for and promotes the following:  1.) Teams and players to focus on the game action and minimizes distractions.  2.) Score board operator and official book are not interrupted by fans cheering for their team.  3.) Umpires are close to team managers and score keepers.  4.) Fans can cheer for their team in the bleachers.  5.) This makes for a fun and memorable experience for the players.



Sunflower seeds are allowed in the bleachers.  However, please observe the posted sign if you choose to eat sunflower seeds.  Your help is greatly appreciated by the grounds crew staff.



Patriot Park is a tobacco free facility.



THANK YOU in advance for observing the Ballfield Courtesy Zone signs.
