Holloway Field
Holloway Field is home to the baseball club, Windsor Royals in Newmarket, Queensland and is regarded as the home of baseball in Brisbane currently.

After the formation of the Windsor Royals in 1955, the club was looking for a permanent site to play baseball. Originally, Crosby Park in Albion was planned to be the new ground for the Royals, but was rejected by the Brisbane City Council. In 1964, the club was approved to break ground for a stadium at Spencer Park in Newmarket. On the May 10, 1964, the ground was officially named Holloway Field after Windsor foundation and life member, Stan Holloway. It was expanded and renovated in 1986 and is expected to be refurbished in the near future as to accommodate the Brisbane based team in the newly formed Australian Baseball League starting in 2010. The field itself is a fully fenced and regulation size field with covered sunken dugouts, 2 bullpens, 2 battery cages, 2 officials' boxes, a scorers box and seating for 1500, floodlighting was also added on September 24, 1982 and a sprinkler system two years later. It is currently the training camp of the Netherlands national baseball team and has hosted a variety of international baseball matches, including the World Master Games and is the home ground of the Queensland Rams for Claxton Shield games and the newly formed Australian Baseball League.
