One of the most versatile stadiums in sports, Chukchansi Park in Fresno (CA), is one of only a few facilities that regularly host an array of professional baseball, football and soccer events. Most impressive is that all events are held on the same professional-grade playing field.
David Jacinto, Head Groundskeeper and member of the Sports Turf Managers Association, is responsible for maintaining the natural grass playing surface and transforming it from a baseball to soccer arena in less than 24 hours, usually by himself. As a one-man band, Jacinto works his magic by mowing and painting his way to success.
The venue often hosts concerts, Liga MX teams from México, high school football, junior soccer and baseball events and has even seen an appearance from San Francisco Giants star-pitcher, Tim Lincecum.
Be sure to add Chukchansi Park to your “must-see” list of ballparks!
