It began decades ago as Rendezvous Park… a simple concrete grandstand running from 1st to 3rd with no overhang or architectural features of any kind. Rendezvous Park was built in 1921 and served many years… until 1971, despite being a less than attractive and amenable ballpark. When HoHoKam Park I was created in its footprint in 1976, the design grew out a little as the grandstand expanded from just a few rows deep to about 18 rows and its trademark bronze
pressbox gave the stadium some sort of structure other than just a concrete bowl. HoHoKam Park I became a premier baseball stadium for 20 years here in Arizona with Scottsdale Stadium, Phoenix Muni, Tempe Diablo and HoHoKam Park being the cornerstones of Phoenix based Spring Training baseball.
