Cavalier Field has a long history as the field for the St. Mary of the Plains baseball team. When the school closed, the field fell into a state of disrepair and was virtually unusable.
But now, through the "Why Not Dodge" sales tax program and the Athletic Field Maintenance staff, Cavalier Field has been transformed into a first class baseball facility.
Cavalier Field was completely renovated and opened in 1998 with a new backstop and outfield fencing, dugouts, field lights, and seating. The cost of those improvements was just under $500,000 and was funded mostly by the "Why Not Dodge" sales tax along with a $50,000 Dodge City Community College partnership.
The field now serves as the home for the DCCC Conquistadors, the college summer league Dodge City A’s and is used by local youth and adult teams and for team tournaments.
A restroom / concession facility which will be completed in the first quarter of 2009. Future plans are to add covered seating in the grandstand area.
