Shaw Park will host baseball at the 2017 Canada Summer Games. This stadium is located adjacent to The Forks Historic Site, near the city's downtown, and is home to the Winnipeg Goldeyes of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball. It was built to meet all standards for “AAA” professional baseball. The facility was used during the 1999 Pan American Games, the 2002 North American Indigenous Games and is the site of numerous festivals and concerts.
The stadium has a seating capacity of 7,481, as well as 30 luxury skysuites, a picnic area, and an open patio overlooking the field. The concourse and concessions are open to the field so you’re always part of the game. The playing field has a natural grass surface and a traditional dirt infield. The outfield dimensions are symmetrical, with distances of 325 feet from home plate to each foul pole and 400 feet to straightaway centerfield.
