It is one of two ballparks in organized professional baseball where the batter faces west, and as such, faces directly into the setting sun (the other being Wahconah Park in Pittsfield, Massachusetts). This forces the Blaze to start most games later than any team in professional ball. From mid-June to mid-August, it's not unusual for games to begin as late as 7:58 PM.

Sam Lynn Ballpark was named for the former local owner of a Coca-Cola bottling company who donated much of his income to youth baseball leagues in the area." />Visit SamLynnBallpark.com to explore the home of the Bakersfield Train Robbers Visit SamLynnBallpark.com to explore the home of the Bakersfield Train Robbers
