Home to the Tigers of Auburn University, Plainsman Park draws inspiration from Major League Baseball stadiums across America. Ballparks like Camden Yards and Wrigley Field were big in helping architects renovate the park in 1996. Plainsman Park has been renamed twice; once to Hitchcock Field in 1997, and another time to Samford Stadium in 2003. This was to include honorary titles of long-time athletes and trustees. Renovations to Plainsman Park are ongoing with the constant modernization of LED lights, more comfortable chairs and camera wells for reporters and sports coverage nationwide. Plainsman Park made history in 2002 with a presidential speech brought to over 14,000 attendees by George W. Bush. Get the best Plainsman Park seats with tickets at StubHub.
