Sam Lynn Ballpark (also known as "Historic" Sam Lynn Ballpark) is a baseball venue located in Bakersfield, California (4009 Chester Avenue Bakersfield, CA 93301) and is the oldest ballpark of the Class-A Advanced California League. It was built in 1941 for the Bakersfield Badgers who began that season as a charter member of the California League. The current tenant is called the Bakersfield Blaze and is affiliated with the American League's Seattle Mariners.
It is one of two ballparks in organized professional baseball where the batter faces west, and as such, faces directly into the setting sun (the other being Wahconah Park in Pittsfield, MA). This forces the Blaze to start most games later than any team in professional ball. From mid-June to mid-August, it's not unusual for games to begin as late as 7:58 PM.
Sam Lynn Ballpark was named for the former local owner of a Coca-Cola bottling company who donated much of his income to youth baseball leagues in the area.
The following is a list of Bakersfield franchise names dating back to 1941.
*note: ''Bakersfield did not field teams in 1943, 1945, 1980 and 1981''.
