Stockton Ballpark in Stockton, CA, is the home of the Stockton Ports, the Oakland Athletics' Low-A California League farm team. The Ports call their playpen Banner Island Ballpark, but the sign under which fans pass while entering the main gate reads Stockton Ballpark. Absent lease terms to the contrary, a facility's owner names it, and in this case that is the city of Stockton.
What is today known as Banner Island is located in Oakland's protected territory. While it may have been an island in the 1800s, today it is a peninsula. Charles Weber inspired its name by flying the U.S. flag after Union victories, Coxey’s Army protesters camped here before their Panic of 1893 march on Washington, DC, World War II ships were built here - and professional baseball arrived by the 1880s.
Stockton Ballpark was to host the 2020 California League All-Star Game, but the event was lost to the Coronavirus pandemic.
