John Thurman Field

John Thurman Field is a stadium in Modesto, California. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Modesto Nuts minor league baseball team of the California League. It was built in 1955 and holds 4,000 people. It was later named for California State Assemblyman John Thurman, from Modesto. There has been talk about making a new stadium around the general area and although the issue remains inconclusive, a decision is expected sometime before 2012.

Notable events

During the 2007 season, legendary left-hander Randy Johnson made an appearance for the Arizona Diamondbacks affiliate, then called the Visalia Oaks. Johnson's appearance sparked a media frenzy and helped the Nuts draw over 5,000 fans for that day's game.
