Walter Johnson ParkWalter Johnson Park

The Red Ravens play all home games at Walter Johnson Field located in Walter Johnson Park, 715 Park Ave., Coffeyville, Kansas.

Construction of the field began in the summer of 1998 and was completed in the spring of 1999 with the installation of tournament lighting and grandstand seating. The City of Coffeyville contracted with Phil Pennington to build the field and Red Raven baseball teams provided much of the labor, including laying nearly 100,000 square feet of sod.

The field was renovated in 2008 after a flood damaged the park in July 2007. The field is undergoing additional enhancements in 2011-2012 including improved dugouts, new bullpen and field mounds, and the installation of an all-net backstop.

Dimensions: LF - 330; CF - 390; RF - 330.

Driving Directions: From intersection of 8th Street and Highway 169, turn east at flashing caution light and follow 8th Street to Park Avenue. Walter Johnson Park is located on the far east side of Coffeyville near the fairgrounds.
