Avista StadiumEdit profile
Avista Stadium is a ballpark located in Spokane Valley, Washington, United States. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Spokane Indians minor league baseball team, a Class A short-season affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The stadium opened in 1958 and holds 7,162 people; this is a large capacity in comparison to other Single A ballclubs because the facility was built to house a AAA ballclub (which it did until the end of the 1982 PCL season).
On January 15, 2011, The Spokane Chiefs and Avista Stadium hosted what was the first outdoor game in Western Hockey League history, in which the hometown Chiefs defeated the Kootenay Ice in a rout, 11-2.
