At Stylehawk Event Services, we have access to some of the premier sporting facilities in Southern California. One such venue is Blair Field in Long Beach, California. Built in 1958 and extensively renovated in 1992, it received additional multi-million dollar upgrades in 2016. The recent upgrades include a 9,600-square-foot batting facility and a new three-mound bullpen.
The field is home to the Long Beach State University 49ers baseball team (affectionately called the “Dirtbags”), several local high school teams, and it also hosts the annual Area Code Games, one of the premier baseball showcases for high school athletes from around the country.
Blair Field is rich with history, having been prominently featured in multiple television shows, movies, and commercials, including Moneyball, Mr. Baseball, The Client List, and Franklin and Bash. It has also been host to the MTV Rock N’ Jock Softball Challenge.
But Blair Field isn’t just a “Hollywood” stadium. Some of the finest players in the world have graced its field—players like MLB’s Jason Giambi, Jered Weaver, Troy Tulowitzki, Evan Longoria, and Jason Vargas. In fact, every MLB first-round draft pick from Southern California has played at Blair Field at least once in their career!
Blair Field is an ideal Long Beach venue for any baseball or softball event or tournament. It features an upgraded sound system, a state-of-the-art scoreboard with a full LCD color video screen and LED score displays, new box seats, newly-improved locker room facilities, batting cages, Triple-A standard lighting, and a picnic area. It has been called one of the top 15 collegiate baseball parks in the nation by Baseball America, and its Bermuda grass field is meticulously maintained.
Stylehawk Event Services has a great working relationship with the management of Blair Field, and can help you secure this special Long Beach venue for your event. In addition, you can hire the Stylehawk team to help you with your event management and event logistics, including event staffing, volunteer recruitment, crowd management, and many more services to help make your event a success!
