The original home of the San Diego Padres.


It was a downtown, waterfront ballpark, built at the northeast corner of Broadway and Harbor Drive. They say location is everything, and that was, and still is, never truer than at Lane Field.

The new park commemorates the ballpark built by Depression-era workers for Los Angeles businessman Bill Lane, who moved his Pacific Coast League Hollywood Stars to San Diego in 1936 and renamed them the Padres. Its breezy waterfront location, coupled with San Diego’s blue skies and mild temperatures, made for ideal conditions to take in a ballgame where baseball greats Jackie Robinson and Ted Williams once played.
