Directions to Pullman Park

The BlueSox are proud to play their home games on the same field that has hosted some of the greatest ballplayers of all-time, including Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, and Josh Gibson. Though known as Pullman Park for over 70 years, the ballpark became Kelly Automotive Park when its naming rights were purchased in 2014.

In 1934, the Standard Steel Car Company donated a few acres of land to become Butler's main baseball field. Farm teams with the Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, and Pittsburgh Pirates played called Pullman Park their home. The Butler Yankees played at the field from 1936 until 1942, and returned after World War II to play in the Middle Atlantic League. The minor league teams played in Butler until 1951. After that the park hosted numerous high school and college games.

In 2008, the Redevelopment Authority of Butler rebuilt the park's seating area, concession stand, and field. The multi-million dollar renovation attracted the BlueSox. The agreement to rename the field Kelly Automotive Park will help to keep baseball being played in Butler, both by the BlueSox and local college and high school teams for years to come.
