The Ballpark at Jackson Facts, Figures & Firsts


  • Construction cost: $8 million
  • Financing: The City of Jackson issued a general obligation bond
  • Architect: Heery International
  • Construction manager: Henson Construction Services
  • Was called Pringles Park from the time it opened through the 2012 season, while the team that played there was called the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx through the 2010 season, after which they changed their name to Jackson Generals.
  • Original naming rights: Proctor & Gamble, makers of Pringles potato chips, signed a 15-year, $1.2 million deal on December 23, 1997 that was the first ever naming rights agreement for a Double-A ballpark. Pringles have been made in Jackson since the 1970s.
  • Owned by the City of Jackson.
  • The original lease between the city and team, which coincided with the length of the original naming rights agreement, was for 15 years. It gave the right for Jackson's Southern League team to play rent-free at the stadium, although the city received a surcharge on all tickets sold (excluding season tickets) and 75% of the money received for the stadium's naming rights.
  • Has 8 suites, with four of them on each side of the press box.
  • Since 2010, has been the host site for the Ohio Valley Conference (NCAA Division I) baseball tournament. The OVC Baseball Championship will continue to be held at Jackson's ballpark through at least 2016, as that's when the current deal expires. Jacksonville State won the '10 tourney while Austin Peay has won the tournament title, and the corresponding automatic bid into the 64-team NCAA baseball tournament field, in 2011-13.
  • Located next to the West Tennessee Healthcare Sportsplex, a 17-field youth baseball and softball complex that opened on August 25, 2006.
  • First game: April 16, 1998; the West Tenn Diamond Jaxx beat the Jacksonville Suns, 5-4, before an announced crowd of 6,054
