    Lawrence Dumont Stadium

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lawrence Dumont Stadium is a Minor League Baseball ground that is home to the Wichita Wingnuts. It was built in 1934 and last renovated in 2001. It holds 6,400 fans and is one of the few stadiums in the world that features a natural grass outfield with an astrosturf infield.

    The stadium is named after Charles S. Lawrence, Wichita mayor from 1933 to 1934 who died on September 20, 1934 after convincing the city to move the park within the city limits. And Ray "Hap" Dumont who had promised to hold semi-pro games in the then new stadium.

    Wichita State plays in the Missouri Valley Conference. In 2011 they finished in second place, only a game out of first.

    Their arena probably holds around 12,000 or so, and is often sold out or nearly so. Years ago I went to a game there and the seats were 90% full.

    Here is a photo of the exterior of the gym and a shot of the interior taken off of tv during a game.
