Mainz Athletics - Ballpark


The Mainz Athletics played their home games at Sandflora Ballpark between 1988 and 2010. The field is located between the neighborhoods of Mainz-Mombach and Mainz-Gonsenheim, an area that was previously the grounds of an American military installation. Sandflora comprised a baseball and a softball field, both of which were occupied by the Athletics. Since the fields overlap, games could be played on both fields at the same time.

The Bundesliga All-Star Game and the European Cup were held at the Sandflora several times. The field also hosted the 1999 Junior European Championship and in the inaugural 2002 Softball All Star Game.

The field lies in a residential neighborhood, the because field can become loud during games, the Athletics must find a new place to play. The club plans for a new ballpark along the Hart M├╝hlenweg, about 500 meters east of the present facility, to be operational by spring 2011.
