All Sports Stadium was a stadium located at the State Fairgrounds in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It had a capacity of 15,000 people and opened in 1961.

While it was primarily used for baseball and was the home of Oklahoma City 89ers, it was also a popular outdoor concert venue in Oklahoma City. The 89ers baseball team was renamed to Oklahoma RedHawks and moved to AT&T Bricktown Ballpark in 1998. The stadium also hosted various college baseball events, such as Bedlam Baseball between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University and the Big Eight Conference Baseball Tournament for more than twenty years.

The stadium was closed in 1997 and demolished in 2005.
