Meinen Field / Vonachen Stadium was a makeshift ballpark that spent the first 15 years of its life, made up of colored folding chairs, and the rest of its life with a 1/2 permanent grandstand down one line while the other barely had any permanent seating. While it was barely adequate for NCAA Division I baseball (never mind professional baseball), it did feature some of the greatest talent the game had ever seen. Greg Maddux, Albert Pujols and Ralfael Palmiero all called the stadium home in their early Minor League years.
