Fiscalini Field is a stadium in San Bernardino, California. It originally was called Perris Hill Park, but in 1993 it was renamed "Fiscalini Field". Through the years the stadium was the Spring Training Homes of the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Browns and was the home field for the San Bernardino Stars and the San Bernardino Pioneers. Today the park is used for recreational use.

History

The park was originally built in 1934, and named Perris Hill Park after Fredrick Thomas Perris a railroad developer who helped shape early San Bernadino. [www.ci.san-bernardino.ca.us/about/history/streets_n_places/perris_hill_park.asp ] In 1993 the baseball field was renamed "Fiscalini Field" after the late John Fiscalini, a San Bernardino native, who earned All-Citrus Belt League baseball honors at San Bernardino High School, won All-American Laurel twice while playing at the University of California at Berkeley and played professionally for the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Today

The field is primarily used for baseball and was the home of San Bernardino Spirit prior to Arrowhead Credit Union Park opening 1996. The CSUSB and SBVC baseball teams currently play there.
