City of Springfield Announces Purchase of Hammons Field

In a move to possibly keep the Springfield Cardinals in town, the City of Springfield, MO announced this afternoon (Wednesday) that it has bought Hammons Field from the Revocable Trust of John Q Hammons.

The Trust had filed bankruptcy in 2016.

When Major League Baseball took over the Minor Leagues in 2021, they mandated certain standards that all minor league stadiums need to meet.

Hammons Field needs at least $10 million of renovations to meet those standards, and the trust declined the updates, despite the Cardinals suing them to leave the facility in 2025.
