The Rainiers play their home games at Cheney Stadium, which hosted the baseball portion of the 1990 Goodwill Games. The Mariners' Safeco Field is about 30 miles to the north. Oakland Athletics power hitters José Canseco and Mark McGwire both played for the Tacoma Tigers on their way to baseball stardom. Alex Rodriguez also played for the team in their first year as the Rainiers in 1995, before becoming a superstar.
Cheney Stadium underwent a $30 million stadium remodel and was completed in time for the Rainiers' home opener in 2011. Upgrades include, among other amenities, new seating for 8,000 fans, 16 luxury suites, a kids’ play area, more restrooms and concession stands, and a new club level restaurant.
