Franklin Covey FieldEdit profile
Spring Mobile Ballpark (formerly known as Franklin Covey Field) is a baseball park in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Salt Lake Bees minor league baseball team and hosts several University of Utah baseball games each year. The stadium is located on the site of old Derks Field, Salt Lake City's former minor league ballpark. Spring Mobile Ballpark was built in 1994 with a capacity of 15,500 people. In its inaugural season, the Buzz set a PCL attendance record with over 714,000 fans. The team led the PCL in attendance in each of its first six seasons in Salt Lake.
Besides hosting the Salt Lake Bees, Spring Mobile Ballpark has played host to two exhibition games featuring the Minnesota Twins, the 1996 Triple-A All Star Game, concerts, soccer matches, and high school and college baseball games, including a Mountain West Conference tournament.
Spring Mobile Ballpark is noted for its stunning views of the Wasatch Mountains over the left and center field walls. On April 7, 2009, the Bees announced that they had reached a multi-year naming-rights deal with Spring Mobile (a Salt Lake City-based AT&T authorized retailer) to provide the ballpark's new name.
