Siebert Field is the baseball stadium at the University of Minnesota where the Minnesota Golden Gophers college baseball team currently plays portions of their seasons. Some early season contests are held at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, home of the Minnesota Twins. It is named in honor of Dick Siebert, a former head coach who led the Gophers to three national titles. Prior to 1971 the team played at Delta Field.

The University is in the planning stages of placing a new stadium on the current location. [ [http://www.mndaily.com/articles/2007/09/18/72163406 Athletics facilities might see repairs, upgrades - Minnesota Daily ] ]

In 1994-1995, Siebert Field was home to an independent pro team, the Minneapolis Loons. [ [http://www.ballparkreviews.com/minn/siebert.htm Siebert Field - Minneapolis, Minnesota ] ]

Numerous Minnesota State High School League baseball tournament games have been played at Siebert over the years.

Trivia

Siebert Field was built on a former Minneapolis neighborhood. The tops of the houses were razed, and the outfield is built on the foundations of old houses.
