History

It was built in 1991, when the High Desert Mavericks came to the area. Mavericks Stadium, a city-owned $6.5 million facility, opened on April 23, 1991. The green of the baseball diamond sharply contrasts the surrounding desert landscape.

Fan support in the High Desert was a Minor League success story in their first year. In 1991, the Mavericks became the first team in the California League to draw over 200,000 fans in one season. In 1996, the Mavericks drew their one-millionth fan, becoming one of the fastest teams to reach that milestone.

It is known as an extraordinarily hitter-friendly ballpark.

The Mavericks' Luke Tendler hit the final California League home run in Heritage Field at Maverick Stadium and the Mavericks history with a solo shot in the bottom of the 8th inning on September 17th, 2016. The 7 - 4 victory over the Visalia Rawhide was the Mavericks final game in the stadium, as the team was contracted out after the season.

The attendance for the final game ever played at Heritage Field at Maverick Stadium was 1,991. 1991 was also the same year that the Mavericks began play.

It was reported that Heritage Field at Maverick Stadium was trashed, with about $10,000 in damages done to the stadium after the Mavericks final game on September 17, 2016. Adelanto Mayor Rich Kerr called it a “petulant act of vandalism,” and it included damages to the Mavericks locker room, field and concourse.

Naming rights

For the stadium's first 16 years, it was called Mavericks Stadium. It received its Stater Bros. Stadium name in 2007 when Stater Bros., a supermarket chain based in San Bernardino, California bought the naming rights. In 2014, it was renamed Heritage Field at Stater Bros. Stadium when a naming-rights deal was signed between the Mavericks and the Heritage Victor Valley Medical Group. In 2015, the name was updated to Heritage Field at Maverick Stadium.
